What are Comments?

Comments offer a way for team members to exchange ideas without directly editing shared documentation. Use comments to communicate with others, share feedback and alert other team members to important information by mentioning them.

 

Content blocks which include comments are marked with an icon in the right sidebar which shows the number of comments/threads currently active on this block. Click this icon to toggle between showing/hiding comments.

 

Discussions and Threads

If you and your teammates post multiple comments to a single content block, they will be organized into discussion threads. See below to learn more about showing/hiding discussions in your notes.


 

Show/Hide Comments

Content blocks which include comments are marked with an icon on the right-hand side of the block. You can show or hide comments and discussions by clicking this icon.
