Overview

For every card, the Comments & Attachments segment displays two different sections. The left section is for Adding Comments and the right section is for Attachments.

Once you add and save any card then beside the Details, Linked Cards, Activity Log, etc., there is a Comments & Attachments segment.

Steps to Add Comments

In the Comments & Attachments segment, you can add comments in the Comments section for every card. If you don’t see the comments section for a card, it may have been hidden for the module. You can unhide it if you have appropriate rights.

In this section, you can view all comments entered by various team members for an item. Every comment has a user’s name, profile picture, time, and date stamp for it.

To add a comment to a card:

  1. Go to the required card and go to the Comments & Attachments segment.
  2. Add a comment in the given comment box.
  3. Here, you can mention other team members with the symbol ‘@‘ and add any smileys.
  4. Once you are done, click on the Comment button and save the comments.
  5. You can add replies to the comments made by other team members or by yourself too. The replies are displayed below the parent comment box.
  6. You can edit the comments made by you, but not made by others. To edit a comment on a card, in the Comments section, click on Edit below the comment. Edit your comment in the Comment box and click SAVE.  The comments can be tracked based on the details displayed for each, such as the date and time, comment type, and team member who commented, also identified by the profile image displayed.

Comments & Attachments

With that, you can view your comments and the comments in which your team members tag you with the ‘@’ symbol.

Receive Email if Mentioned in Comments

Here’s how it works:

  1. A teammate mentions you using “@” in a workitem’s comment section. Example: @MarkRobison
  2. You’ll receive an email notification containing the following details:
    • Project name
    • Workitem ID (clickable link to the workitem)
  3. Workitem name with contextual information:
    • Previous comment
    • New comment
  4. Blocking comment (if the new comment unblocks the workitem)

The full comment with your mention is highlighted. Clicking the workitem link opens
it is in a new browser tab with the comments section already displayed.

Notes:

  • You’ll only receive one notification per comment, even if you’re mentioned multiple
    times.
  • Notifications are sent regardless of whether the comment is added via web or mobile
    app.
  • Modifying a comment with an “@” mention will resend the notification to all mentioned
    users.
