Commenting


#1

Similar to the Google Docs feature, this would give an additional sharing access level for people to view and comment, but not edit.

In many cases, I would be more comfortable sharing my lists in this way than allowing others to edit.


Quick way to implement collaboration features: Integrated with a good collaboration software

I just found out we didn’t add this feature request here. Here’s a link to the Trello card so that people can vote for it: https://trello.com/c/TPc7BAZS/139-add-comments-to-items

Thanks for posting this, @Matt_Groth!

What would ‘comments’ look like? Just editing notes instead of items too?


#4

I think they should look like google docs. Comments there are in their own pane, so the original document is not affected. Perhaps a little indicator somewhere on items that have comments. Also a search feature allowing us to see only items with comments would be awesome.


#5

I’d love if commenting was implemented similarly to Quip:

  1. A collapsible side panel with chat for the whole document
  2. In-line commenting

These two types of comments are very useful for contextual collaboration, so I don’t have to go searching round for whatever the person I’m talking to is referring to.


#6

We weren’t thinking about this one, to be honest. Is Quip the only one that’s doing this?


#7

Nah I’ve seen it on a few:

Samepage

Etherpad

Google Docs (sort of inbetween a side panel and inline)

Depending on how inline comments is implemented though it could cover the ‘document-wide’ chat panel use. E.g. an inline comment for the document title, and this comment left pane can then be accessed via bookmarks or somewhere prominent in a comment pane.


#8

Thanks for the ideas. I think real-time document “chat” is taking collaboration a bit too far for what we have so far. I think we’ll implement inline comments first and see if that’s necessary.

Thanks!

@Erica Quire does this very well.
