What are Notes?

Notes is a tool that lets you take virtual, time-stamped notes in context while learning, mark important topics or sections you want to recall for real-world application later, and easily find and rewatch key points of videos within the course.

With Notes, you can write virtual notes tied to a specific point in the video timeline, organize them with hashtags to easily find them and jump to the video, and review them in the video player or on the Notes page.

How do I add a note to my Notes?

To add a note, you will have to launch a Pluralsight video.  While watching a course, click the "add a note" button at the bottom of the player.

This will open a text field in the right hand sidebar. When you start typing, you will see the time within the module that is associated with the note.

Press Enter to add the note.

Can I download my Notes?

Yes. You can download your Notes in two different locations, depending on whether you want to download all your Notes, or only Notes for a specific course.

Download all Notes

Go to your Notes page by clicking on the notes icon in the left pane of your dashboard or by clicking here. Click the Download notes link in the top right corner to download a csv of all of your Notes.

Download Notes for a specific course

Navigate to a video in the course, click on Notes in the right sidebar, then click Download notes.

Is there a way to search my Notes?

The Notes feature supports hashtags for searching capabilities. In order to organize your Notes, use a hashtag, e.g., #api, to organize your Notes and make them searchable.

You can also navigate to your Notes page and use the "Search notes..." field to search through your notes.

Can I edit or delete a note from my Notes?

To delete or edit a note, go to the course where the note was created. 

Click Notes in the right hand sidebar, and hover over the note you want to delete or edit. This will give you the option to delete or edit the note.

What formatting options are available for Notes?

Our Notes feature uses markdown for formatting, and specifically Github flavored markdown. 

Additionally, you can use a number sign (#) to create a tag, for example #javascript, that would let you access all notes you've created across all your courses, that you tagged as #javascript.

Tip: Use Shift-Enter to create a line break. Pressing Enter will save your Note unless you toggle that off.

Here are the different stylings you can use with Markdown in Pluralsight notes:


You can use # symbols to create six sizes of headers and subheaders to organize your Notes.

# Header 1
## Header 2
### Header 3
#### Header 4
##### Header 5
###### Header 6

Alternate method: You can create 2 levels of headers with dashes/equals signs.

Header 1
Header 2

Bulleted list (unordered list)

* Item 1
* Item 2
  * Item 2a
  * Item 2b

Numbered list (ordered list)

1. Item 1
2. Item 2
3. Item 3
  * Item 3a
  * Item 3b

Links - automatic!

Bold and italics

__This text is bold__
**This text is also bold**
_This text is italicized_
*This text is also italicized*
__*Here's bold AND italics together*__

Blockquote, or indent

This appears on your All Notes page, but will not display formatted on the page when you're watching a course. You can nest indents.
