Adding and editing comments

Posting plan comments

Users with different access levels, such as account owners, contributors, and guests, can all post comments in the Plan section for each topic included in the plan document. This feature is an excellent way to share ideas and discuss specific areas of the plan in an organized manner. Users can even use the comments section to jot down notes related to topics they would like to cover.

Comments are only displayed within the LivePlan application; they will not appear in the downloaded plan document or the print preview. Also, if you remove a topic from your plan, its comments will be stored. If you add that topic to the plan later, the comments will be restored.

Note: If you like, you can receive email notifications when comments are posted.

To post a comment:

  1. Click the Comments button in the top right of the topic where you'd like to post a comment:
    Plan > Add Comment.png
  2. Type your comment in the field provided, then click the green arrow button to the right to post the comment on the topic.

To view the comments on a specific topic of the plan:

Navigate to the desired topic in your plan outline. If there are comments, the number of comments will be shown at the top right of the topic. Click the link to expand the comment, and click again to minimize:
