[EpiData-list] notes during dataentry in EDEC

Dear list-members
In the "old" EpiData Entry, a note editor can be opened during data entry using F5, the note is stamped with the time, observation (record), and field from which you hit F5. This allow easy documentation of decisions made during data entry, as the person entering information can describe the situation and decision.
This seems not to be implemented in the Manager/Entry Client structure, so my question is whether any of my fellow users have developed an alternative using other software, allowing parsing of information on record and variable? My experience is that the information is not always noted if using a paper or notepad solution leading to poorer documentation than in the EDE days.
Best wishes
