    Default Comma after *Please note* ?

    Should we enter a comma when we start sentance with *Please note*?

    For example

    Please note, we will .....

    P.S. I was searching a similar post, but I didn't find it.

    Also, before but in the above sentence should I use a comma ?
    I think that I should use.

    Thank you

    A comma is correct in your example, but I'd say 'Please note that we will...'

    A comma is optional before 'but' in your second sentence.

    For your second question, we usually use a comma before a coordinating conjunction, but it can be omitted when the second clause is short.
