How Comments Work
Project Comments do not require specific user rights. Every user can see and add comments to all projects.
Project Comments are global and identical across all scenarios. Below the time stamp, every comment displays the scenario in which it was created. This helps you understand which project version the comment refers to.
Adding Single Comments
To add a comment, click the comment field and enter the desired text:
Next, click the send icon. Your comment will be displayed with your name, the time stamp and the scenario in which you added your comment.
Adding Bulk Comments
In the Project List view, you can comment on multiple projects simultaneously. To write an identical comment on multiple projects at the same time, select the projects which you want to comment on and select Comment in the toolbar. In the dialogue, type your comment. Click Comment to add your comment to all your selected projects.
Mentioning Users in Comments
Mention your colleagues in a comment, e.g., to inform them about a change or to ask a question about the project. Just enter the @ icon and start to type the name. Meisterplan will suggest users that match the string.
Users mentioned in a comment will receive a notification by email containing the comment and a link to that comment.
A user that is the project manager on a project will receive a notification by email for every comment added to that project
To be able to receive notifications by email, users need to verify their email address and activate the option for receiving email notifications in their user profiles.
Users that have not verified their email address can also be mentioned, but their name will be greyed out with the note "notifications disabled".
To delete your comment, move your cursor over the comment and click the trash can icon. You can only delete your own comments.
