Comment and mention others

Start discussions on your research, and pull people into conversations with mentions. Comments can be added by any Dovetail user, including your Viewers.

When you post a comment, an email notification will be sent to the person who created what you’re commenting on. Anyone you mention in a comment will also get an email notification.

Add a new comment

You can add comments to notes, tags, insights, and the project readme:

To add an inline comment to a specific range of text:

  1. Highlight the text you want to comment on.

  2. Click the comment button that appears to the right of the editor.

  3. Type your comment.

  4. Click Post.

To add a comment to the whole page:

  1. Click Add comment….

  2. Type your comment.

  3. Click Post.

Comments support all Formatting and keyboard shortcuts, such as text and insert lists, links, attachments, and images. If you start writing a comment and close your browser or navigate away, the draft will still be there when you come back.

Mention people in comments

Type an @ in a comment to search Dovetail users who can be mentioned. Mentioning a user will send an email notifying them that they’ve been mentioned by you.
