Comments and notecards are two powerful tools that help facilitate dialogue between collaborators in a workspace. Each feature has benefits and capabilities for leaving feedback, questions, and suggestions on workspace assets.
Let’s explore the two features:
With just a few clicks, you can leave comments to kick off a collaboration conversation or give feedback on assets in a workspace.
General comments on assets like canvases, images, and videos help facilitate a chat-like dialogue between collaborators without leaving the workspace.
For example, the image below displays a comment on a canvas that instructs collaborators to begin a task. From here, team members can participate in a general dialogue related to the task.
Get granular with focused comments on individual assets like images, videos, notecards, shapes, etc. This is especially useful when leaving feedback or asking clarifying questions about a creative asset in review.
Even more powerful is leaving pixel-level feedback on an image or frame-level comments on videos to get even more specific.
Like most communication tools, you can @mention collaborators by name in the workspace, which notifies them via email to reply. This is especially useful when working across applications. The email guides the collaborator to the asset they were mentioned in.
Just like Slack has threads, you can reply to an individual comment within the context of a larger conversation. Keep thoughts, ideas, and dialogues on track with individual replies.
Marking comments as resolved indicates that specific feedback has been actioned or solved. This level of transparency is helpful for all collaborators involved.
Note: You cannot mark in-thread replies as resolved, only main comments within the comments panel.

Notecards are also a great way to add feedback, ask questions, or leave suggestions on assets.
A key differentiator between comments and notecards is that notecards are visible as individual workspace assets. All collaborators can view the notecard/feedback at a glance within the workspace.
Assigning colored notecards to individual collaborators is an easy way to distinguish who left the feedback in a workspace. Alternatively, collaborators can mark their initials on the notecard to demonstrate who the feedback is from.
Comments offer enhanced capabilities to facilitate conversation and feedback between collaborators in the workspace:
Use comments to create an ongoing conversation related to a project in the workspace.
Leave focused comments, like pixel or frame-level comments on assets in a workspace.
Mention collaborators to get quick input and answers.
Resolve comments to keep all collaborators informed.
