Collaborating on reports is fun.

One of the major advantages of using Dovetail stories for reporting is the additional collaboration features that are usually absent from more traditional reporting formats like PDFs. In this guide, learn how to use our collaboration features to maximize your research's impact.

Collaboration features in stories

  • Share links that allow you to notify stakeholders about your recent research findings

  • Inline and page comments that allow you to start a conversation with your team directly in a story

  • @ mention tagging that can be used to draw specific team members’ attention to a noteworthy finding or piece of evidence
