Add Discussions to Notes

This feature is available to all users

Add discussions and comments to notes to communicate with your team members and share feedback.

What are Discussions?


Discussions offer a way for team members to exchange ideas without directly editing shared notes. Start a discussion to communicate with others, share feedback and alert other team members of important information by mentioning them.

You can view a note's active discussions by clicking the discussions icon on the right sidebar. Content blocks that include discussions are marked with a yellow icon which displays the number of discussions and comments still open on that block.

View Open Discussions

You can view all open discussions on a note by clicking the discussions icon on the right sidebar:


Click Reply below any discussion to view all comments in the discussion and jump to the content block it references:
