Ability to disable commenting on a card/grid

Ability to disable commenting on a card/grid

As a Page Builder, I shoud have the ability to disable "COMMENT" feature on a card/grid so as to view all the comments for a context at once in Comment section.

Hi @shabbiraa please could you elaborate on your idea so I can better understand? 

 

Is it that you'd like to disabled commenting for a card so you can view all comments on a page (in this case there being one single thread for the page, instead of per card)? Or would you expect to see all comment threads for a particular context on a page?

 

Alternatively, is it that you need to see all comments for the children of a parent context in a hierarchical list?

 

Thanks,
Emily - Product Manager, Collaboration

Hi @EmilyJ I am requesting to provide an ability for Page Builder to disable commenting feature from cards on a page. Please find below an example.

 

If there are 5 cards on a page, i would like to disable commenting ability from 4 cards so all comments are made on 1 card and viewed together in comments panel.

@EmilyJ As a model builder, i should have ability to disable/hide comment icon from a card/chart/grid on a page. This is to 

 

  1. Avoid users commenting on any card/chart/grid for a given context
  2. View all the comments for a context at one place. This will be a very good solution to ask of many users to view all comments for a context at one place

 

Hope this helps

Great idea @shabbiraa.  For our ICM use case, this would be really helpful since Users expect comments will be answered, but if we cannot easily find/manage the comments, they fall into the "void"...

Thank you for the feedback here. The team is working on a comment summary view in the second half of this year which will allow users to see all conversation threads on a page and their contexts. As for specifically restricting commenting on a particular card, though it's not currently on the roadmap, @JoannaM is the new Product Manager for Collaboration and will be able to bring this in for consideration for a future roadmap.

 

Thanks,
Emily

Hi Team,

 

Regarding the above idea exchange, wanted to understand if there is something in the roadmap. This has been a constant query from our super users too, and this particular feature of hiding the comment section from individual cards can avoid a lot of confusion.

Hi Akhil,

 

Thanks so much for your feedback.

 

Comment summary view will be released next year. This will allow users to see all conversation threads on a page. In terms of restricting commenting on a particular card, we are hoping to improve commenting access control / preferences in the next year, and are currently working on some research projects to further explore the need in this area.

 

Thanks,

Joanna
