- Inline Comments
To add a comment, select the speech bubble icon in the top right corner of the question, and begin typing into the box. Once you have finished, select ‘Save’.
Note: You have a 500 character limit.
When you open the comments box, you will be able to see comments added by previous users, including any previous comments you may have added, with the date and time of the addition.
If you have the 'Comment Manager' permission, you will be able to view and add Private Comments.
To do this, simply tick the 'Private comment' checkbox when adding a comment to an item. This means that only other users with the 'Comment Manager' permission will be able to view your comment.
Comments added will also be visible in the Item History to all users who can view that item. Users with the 'Comment Manager' permission will be able to view all private comments as well.
For those who do not have the 'Comment manager' permission, the Item History will show that a Private Comment has been added, but they will not be able to view the comment itself.
You can also add comments inline with test in question stem and answer option boxes.
Inline comments allow you to add a comment to a specific place within the question text and answer options, which helps users to communicate within Surpass.
Adding Inline Comments
Type your comment in the ‘Inline Comments’ panel and then select the ‘Comment’ button to add the comment to the conversation.
Select the ‘Edit’ button to edit comments you have previously posted.
Once posted, you can reply to inline comments using the ‘Reply’ button. This allows you to create a conversation associated within a particular pin.
Viewing Inline Comments
You can select any pin icon added to the item to view the related inline comments in the panel.
Deleting Inline Comments
Delete whole conversations using the ‘Delete’ button on the top-level comment.
