Add a comment to some text

1. Highlight some text on the item and select the comment bubble icon from the formatting toolbar that appears.

Your comment will now be visible on the item for your team to see. People can reply to your comment by clicking on it on the item, entering their comment into the comments box and pressing 'Send'.

Comments will be grouped together as part of a conversation. If it's a long conversation, you'll notice that GatherContent shows the earliest message, and the latest as a summary. Click the conversation to see all comments in full.

2. Hover over the asset and click the comment bubble icon.

Subscribe to a conversation thread

Whenever you leave a comment in a thread, you're automatically 'subscribed' to that conversation thread. This means you're kept up to date of any responses to that thread. These updates will be included in your email notifications.

Edit or delete a comment

You can edit or delete an existing comment from an item if you made the original comment.

1. Click the comment you want to edit or delete.

  • Click 'Edit' and edit the comment from the text box.
  • Click 'Delete' and then confirm by clicking 'Delete comment'.

You can't edit or delete a comment made by someone else.

Tip: You can delete the entire conversation at once by clicking the first comment in the conversation, and clicking 'Delete', and then 'Delete thread'.

Resolve a comment or conversation

If a conversation (a group of comments) has come to a natural end, you can resolve the conversation to remove it from the item. You can always view previously resolved conversations from the comment history.

1. On the item, click the conversation you wish to resolve.

2. At the top, click 'Resolve conversation'.

Unresolve a comment

If you resolve a comment by mistake, you have 5 seconds to undo this. Click 'undo' shown on the comment you've resolved. After 5 seconds, the comment becomes resolves automatically if you do not select 'undo'. 

This feature is only available while editing content inside an item. It's not available in the Comment history. It's also not possible to unresolve older comments.

FAQ and Troubleshooting

Comment's not showing in the item view?

When a comment is added to the content in an item, it is attached to a mark tag. The mark tag is the yellow highlight that you see appearing on the text when you send a comment.

If that text is deleted, the comment no longer has a mark tag/yellow highlight to stay attached to. As a result, those comments will only be visible in the comment history.

Comments will only remain on the item view if it has a mark tag to hang on to. 👍
