Comments are a great way to start discussions in any place on the board. Share your ideas and thoughts by leaving comments and mentioning collaborators.
💡 To tag yourself in a comment, type @ followed by your name. Use this feature to assign yourself tasks and set reminders in your feed notifications.

Whenever you click outside the comment box, your comment is automatically saved as a Draft.

Post a comment directly on any object on the board, and it will belong to and move with the object.

💡 Feel free to adjust your notification preferences in the settings.
