Working with comments
To the right of the document you will see a list with all comments. You can switch between different filters depending on what type of comments you want to see.
Use the filter to sort by Author, Creation date, Last updated and Page number.
You can also filter the comments on Status. There are four different statuses for comments:
New, In Progress, Done and Rejected. When a new comment is created it will have New as its status.
Any user can then change the status of a comment if it is still open for discussion (In Progress), has been dealt with (Done), or has been rejected (Rejected).
If you wish to add a reply to a comment, select the comment, write your reply and click the Reply button. A timestamp will show when comments and replies were made in the comment list. You can also edit a comment or reply which you have made. Click on the three dots, click Edit reply, make your changes and click the Save button.
