How to Use Comments

Comments are a great way to communicate with the rest of your team on checklists. You can @mention a user to send them an email alert, format your comments with markdown text, and even upload files to them.

Leaving comments on checkists

To leave a comment you first need to open the checklist in question. Do this by clicking the cog next to the parent template‘s name in your dashboard, then choosing from the checklist cards in the bottom of the right-hand menu.


Next, click the task you want to leave a comment on to open it.


Finally, scroll to the bottom of the task to see the comment box. Type in here to start your comment.


Uploading files to comments

To upload a file to your comment, click on the “Attach” button at the bottom of the comment box, select your file, and then confirm.


@Mentioning users in comments

By @mentioning a user currently in your organization in a comment, you send them an email alert. This is a great way to prompt a user to work on a checklist (or particular task) which is urgent.

Do this by typing “@” into your comment, followed by the user’s name – once you see their icon display in the dropdown menu, click their icon to confirm your choice.

A couple of things to note when using comments.

Both users must have verified email addresses and be part of your organization.

The usernames must be different from each other and you also cannot @mention yourself.
