Comments in cards can help you to collaborate with other KanBo users. It is a perfect tool for short conversations related to the card content. Use them to inform your co-workers about the news or ask for details.
Comments written by you are marked with light green color.
It’s easy to see whether your colleagues are typing their comments or answering your message in KanBo. Thanks to the Typing Indicator, you will see whether someone starts typing in the message box in real time.
To filter out comments from other card messages and activities, set the detail level of the card’s activity stream to Comments.
Edit a comment
You have a possibility to edit your comment only for five minutes after sending. Otherwise, the impact on the organization could be too dangerous. In KanBo, we believe that you shouldn’t change the past and rather correct it by writing another message.
- Hover over a message.
- Press more button (three dots).
- Select Edit.
You can’t remove your message after 5 minutes either.
What is the difference between chat and comments?
Comments are located in the card activity stream. Only users who are following the card will get notified about new comments. Board chat is more like a public place. Every board member will be notified of new messages.
Can I edit my comment later?
You can edit or delete your comment only for 5 minutes after sending.
Can I see when someone is typing a comment?
If you are in the card where someone is typing a comment, you will see the typing indicator with user’s avatar.
How do I get someone to be notified of my comment if they are not following the card?
Use @mentions to tag user in a comment.
