  2. To view or add project comments/upload files, simply click or tap on the icon.
  3. Click Comment (Web, macOS, or Windows) or tap the submit arrow (Android or iOS) to save a new comment.

How to notify someone about a comment

There will be times when you write a comment and want to make sure your teammate sees it. In those cases, you can notify them.

To notify someone about a comment, you’ll need to share the project with them first.
If you would like to tag someone in your comment, here's how:
  1. Start a new task comment or project comment in a shared project.
  2. If you would like to tag the other person directly:
    • Enter @ in the comment field and start typing out their name.
    • You will see a list of names matching what you're typing. Once you see the person you want to tag, click their name.
  3. If you would simply like to notify them without tagging them directly, do the following:
    • Click the field next to Notify.
    • Select the users you’d like to notify by clicking their names (or click Everyone if you wish to notify everyone in the project).
  4. When you post the comment, the selected people will receive the comment in their notifications.
  1. Start a new task comment or project comment in a shared project.
  2. If you would like to tag the other person directly:
    • Enter @ in the comment field and start typing out their name.
    • You will see a list of names matching what you're typing. Once you see the person you want to tag, tap their name.
  3. If you would simply like to notify them without tagging them directly, do the following:
    • Tap Notify: no one.
    • Select the people you want to notify.
    • Tap Done
  4. Now when you post the comment, the selected people will receive the comment in their notifications.
