Comments

Look alive, team!

Adding comments

To add a comment in a canvas, click
in the canvas toolbar, or use the shortcut C.
Then you can drop the comment anywhere you'd like:
Canvas comments are 'sticky' and will travel with whatever object they were attached to originally. You can move comments to new objects too.

Who can add comments?

Anyone with view or edit access to a canvas or report can add comments.

Mentions

Add a mention by typing the @ key
When writing a comment, you are able to mention any member of the workspace by typing the @ key - a searchable autocomplete list will appear. Press the Tab or Enter keys, or click a member to add a mention to your comment.

Notifications

When you submit your comment, the following users will be sent an email:
  • The creator of the notebook
  • Anyone who has contributed a version of the canvas
  • Anyone who has commented in the current conversation
  • Anyone that is mentioned in your comment
If a user is no longer able to view the canvas, they will not receive an email notification of your comment, even if you mention them in it.
To stop receiving email notifications about comments, disable them workspace-wide from your account settings.

Viewing comments

in the canvas toolbar:
From here you can also click to view the comment in the canvas and see all Resolved comments.

Resolving comments

When you open the comment in the canvas, you'll see the option to resolve a thread:
Resolve a comment
This will move the comment to the Resolved section of the comment menu, but will not delete it.

Deleting threads

You can also delete comment threads, which will be permanent.
