When Comments are left in a Goal can you add a Icon to notify Users that content relating to Comments is available to be read? This is akin to the Pencil Icon when content added to Notes.

    Hello Brandon

    At the foot of each Goal Comments field there is an 'Email notification' option. When you click it, a list of all the collaborators on that project will appear, with checkboxes to select those who are to be notified of any Comments. Then whenever anyone posts a Comment, all those whose usernames are checked will receive an email notification with the name of the goal in the Subject and the comment text in the Body, with a hyperlink to the Comments field on that goal in the Online project itself.

    If someone replies to the email, their message will appear as a new Comment. Or they can click the link in the email to go to the project itself, see the context for the comment (and the entire discussion history) and post a reply there. Either way, all the other collaborators whose usernames are checked will receive a notification of their reply.

    Email notifications are delayed by 15 minutes to allow people to edit their Comment – and if anyone replies in the project itself in that period, their reply(ies) will be in the same email as the original comment. This is to prevent people being bombarded with multiple emails while others are using Comments for an Instant Messaging-type conversation.

    All the best

    I think my Request has been misunderstood. I don't mean getting an email
    notification. What I mean is when I quickly look at the Goalscape
    (Pinwheel) it would be helpful to know which Goal has Comments added.
    Today I need to click on every Goal and open the Comments Tab to see if
    there is anything there.

    Hello Brandon

    Sorry for the misunderstanding – thanks for your suggestion.

    While we are extremely keen to maintain Goalscape's essential clarity and avoid screen 'clutter', we may well add a Comment icon.

    In the meantime you can use a Tag to indicate the presence of Comments – then you can find all the goals with that Tag using the Highlight Sidebar.

    Cheers!
