All members of a Method Grid account can leave a comment on a specific element. Comments can be a great way for members of your account to collaborate on the development of an element e.g. users can provide suggestions and ideas for grid builders to implement.
To add a comment to a specific element, first open up the element. Next, click on the comment action button (speech bubble) on the element builder action bar (top right - below the main menu bar). This will reveal the comment dropdown. Type your comment and click the save (tick) button to commit the comment to the thread.
You can also @mention a specific colleague to bring a comment to their direct attention.
To use, simply type the “@” symbol followed by the first letters of a name and a dropdown will appear with text-filtered user profiles – simply click on the one you need.
When a comment with an @mention is sent, there is additional functionality to bring it to the notice of your tagged colleague.
If the @mentioned colleague is not logged into Method Grid and reading the comments then, at the next (4-hour) notification sweep, they will receive an email from Method Grid making them aware of this new comment.
Comments, at the task, element and grid levels, appear in an updated interface along with the ability for comments to be edited and deleted by the comment creator.
Edited comments are annotated with the “Edited” tag aside the comment date-time stamp (which always stays at the point of original creation).
