Collaborating using comments in documentsAdded by IBM on December 11, 2013 | Version 1 (Original)
|When you collaborate with multiple editors on a document, it is convenient to add comments. It helps you to communicate with editors working at different times.
When you create a comment, a sidebar is displayed listing all comments for the document. For each comment, you can join a conversation with multiple editors by adding responses. The discussion thread is indented under each comment. You can remove your comments, and direct comments or responses at another editor using the symbol @. You can view comments directed at you or created by you. You can also filter comments by editors to see which comments or responses are directed at them and which comments or responses are written by them.
