Discussions and Adding Comments

The Discussions tab in the Utility Panel displays all of an artifact's comments and their associated replies.

Storyteller allows you to add new comments, reply to existing comments, and delete comments or replies. Each comment and reply displays who made the post, when the post was made, and which version of the artifact it is referring to.

Enter the @ symbol when authoring a reply or comment and enter the username of any other Storyteller user to direct your comment to a specific user. When mentioned in a discussion, the user receives an email notification.

You can also edit your comment or reply by clicking the Edit Comment/Edit Reply button ().
