Feedback requested: Coda is seeking feedback on commenting

Hey there!

My name is Teresa :wave: and I’m a PM here at Coda. We’ve heard your feedback, and are now exploring ways to improve the commenting experience in Coda docs. At this point, we’re still in the research phase and can’t make any promises. With that in mind, we’d love to get some more contextual feedback from our awesome customers.

If you’ve ever wished for comment improvements in Coda, if you use comments in other tools, or if you’re excited about comments in general, we’d love to get your feedback on Coda comments with this quick survey!

Thanks for all you do to help us improve Coda :raised_hands:

Note: We are looking for feedback on the comment experience on the doc content itself, not comments within the formula builder (though if formula comments are important to you, I’d still love to hear your feedback!)

I have replied via the survey - at length - this is a vital feature

I would encourage other makers to respond also

I don’t understand, are you thinking about //comments in formulas, that is a way to document code, or are you thinking about @comments in todos/pages contents, that is a way to discuss with the team ? It’s the same word but 2 totally different meanings and workflows

Great clarifying question. We are more focused on comments in the doc that appear on the right hand side of the doc or below row detail, not //comments in formulas.

However, if //comments in formulas are important to you we’d still love to hear that feedback too! Thanks @Blaise_d_Estais !

Feedback submitted! Thanks for the prompt.

Done! hope my feedback is helpful!

My feedback:

  1. Improve notification review management. There is an old thread I made about this here.
  2. Code comments.
  3. Finally just my opinion but I think the general commenting support in docs/rows otherwise is pretty good and there many other UI/systems that could use more love first.

Thanks!

Sent! Thank you for asking about this

General feedback:
figure out if commenting is for conversations about doc schema or doc content. Are users expected to use comments to move data through a process? If so, why is there an option to Resolve? That seems a bit more relevant for text editing than process conversation.

Offer formulaic control of comments (both for creating and reading).
