To create a comment choose Comment on the toolbar or press C hotkey. Click the spot where you would like to post it, type in your comment, @mention someone if needed, and press Enter. Comments can be attached to any widget on the board - post a comment right on the object and it will belong to this object (note: this doesn't apply to frames).
Adding a comment
⚠️ Please note that comments cannot be copied or cut and pasted together with the objects they were attached to. Comments cannot be exported.
Use Shift + Enter to start a new line in your comment. Note that text formatting is not supported in comments.
You can attach an existing comment to an object.

You can also add comments to messages in notes by simply clicking the small comment icon next to the message.
Adding comments in notes
Never miss a reply to your comments. Once you leave a comment, reply in a thread, or are @mentioned in any comment, you will get a notification of new comments in such threads.
The option to follow thread
Stay up to date on threads you are interested in by manually following a thread or all threads on a board. Find the option to Follow all threads in the board settings.
The option to follow all threads on the board
Once your part in discussion in a thread or on a board completed, you can unfollow any single thread in a comment dialogue box or all existing threads and all future ones at once in the board menu - just untick the option Follow all threads.
💡 Feel free to adjust your notification preferences in the settings.
You can mark any comment thread as Resolved to hide it and focus your attention where it’s most needed:
