Using comments in Userback is a great way to manage feedback and collaborate with others.
For example, maybe you need to make a note for internal eyes only. Or perhaps you need to ask the person who reported the feedback to provide more information.
In this article, we'll explain how to do all this and more with comments.
How to add comments
All comments are located in the Comments side panel.
To add a new comment, simply click Reply and type your message into the comments box. Along with your text reply, you can also include emojis and attachments.
Notify others about your comment
Email comments to the reporter
If you would like the person who reported the feedback to receive an email with your comment, click the "@" icon and ensure that the Reporter is selected.
If you don't see the "Email reporter" option, it's because the reporter did not provide an email address with their feedback.
If you always need the option to email reporters with your comments, you may wish to make the email field mandatory in your widget settings.
The reporter also may have opted out of receiving email notifications in relation to their feedback. In this case, the "Email reporter" option will be disabled.
Email comments to other users
The other users in your account may have opted to receive notifications about new comments. When you select "@", you will see these users with a tick beside their name. This means they will receive an email with your comment.
However, you can override the default setting for individual users by selecting/deselecting their names before posting your comment.
Choose who can see comments
When adding comments, you can choose who will be able to see it in the Feedback Viewer.
Everyone can see
This allows everyone with access to view the feedback to see your comment. Note that if you have chosen to allow public access to the feedback, you are effectively allowing everyone to also see your comment.
This means only the people who are logged into your account can see your comment. Although you can still use the "Email reporter" option to notify the reporter with your comment if you wish.
When there is no further action required with a particular comment, you may wish to resolve it.
To resolve a comment, simply select the checkbox to mark it as resolved.
