Why Comments?

Nozbe Teams is all about improving communication and making collaboration more productive. The core idea behind our app is task-based communication. So, if you want to assign a task to someone, give your opinion, or ask them for feedback, there’s no easier way but through comments.

This way, you can center your team’s communication around tasks. This is how we work at Nozbe. We don’t send emails to one another, we communicate through tasks and comments, and we share projects.

How to Add a New Comment?

You can comment on any task. Even if you’re working all by yourself, it’s a great way to add additional information to a task.

To add a comment, open a task and tap on “Add your comment” window. You can add text, checklists, lists (bullet or numbered) and files.

Editing or Deleting Comments

When you wish to edit or delete one of your comments, tap on the three dots next to your name.

In this view you can pin, edit, copy to clipboard or delete the comment.

Don’t worry if you open one of your old comments, start editing it and then accidentally switch to another view without saving the changes. We have you covered with the autosave function. Just go back to the task, and open the edit mode again. You will see your previous changes. You can either cancel or save them.

Reactions

In Nozbe Teams, you don’t always have to write a reply to your team member’s comment. Instead, you can add a reaction to it!

To do so, tap on the three dots and choose one of the available reactions:

Once you add a reaction, you can always remove it. If you want to do so, tap on its icon, and it will disappear.

You can also check who added the reaction. To do so, mouse over the reaction icon and you will see the usernames.

How can I mention someone in a comment

Here’s how mentioning works: when you add a @mention in a comment to a task, that person will receive a push notification about your mention in that task. The task will also appear in that user’s Incoming view.

To mention someone, type in the name of that person preceded with a “@” sign (e.g., @John, @Ann) in a comment to a task and choose the person you want to mention from the suggestion list that appears.

Once you start typing, you will see the suggested nicknames. You don’t have to type the whole username after @ symbol. Just tap on Enter or click with the mouse button to choose the one you want. Once you add the comment, you will see that the mention is blue. If someone else mentions you, it will be displayed in orange.

You can also mention every other team member following the project by typing @project. They will see that group mention in their Incoming view as well.
