Most of my headlines contain only timestamps as content.  Some, however, have notes. These notes are usually contextual information that will help me to complete a task.  To remember to check the notes, I type 'see note' at the end of these headlines. I suppose I could also use a tag like ":NOTE:". The problem is that I have to remember to add a tag or type "see note".  I don't like the added step and I sometimes forget to do it.  Before I began tracking state changes I was able to use the elipsis as a visual indication that the note had contents, but now all my notes have elipsis.  Does anyone have a better (automated) way to identify notes?  Perhaps I a hook after org-add-note to add a tag to the headline?  Thanks for any suggestions.

I like the idea of being able to identify entries with notes, but 
this is hardly doable, because notes are formatted differently for
different users.

What's doable instead is to have a function mapping the current buffer
and looking for entries with a LOGBOOK drawer.  You can have a look at
`org-map-entries' for a start.

HTH,
