Record comments allow you, your users and your teammates to add comments to any record in your Noloco app regardless of data source.

Adding comments

You can add comments to a record by typing into the text box at the bottom of the sidebar and sending your comment.

Formatting

You can format your message with Bold, italic or code text, as well as add links, either automatically (by typing or pasting a link) or by converting other text to a link. You can also add ordered lists, unordered lists and code blocks for even richer comments.

Attachments

You can attach as many files as you want to your comments which will then be displayed inline. Attachments are limited to a max size of 45mb and restricted to our list of supported file types.

Mentions

You can mention any other user (who you have permission to access) in a comment. To mention a user type the @ key and then type the user's name and select them from the list.

Notifications

When you add a new comment to a record, anyone who previously commented on a record, or anyone you mention in the comment will be notified by email. The email will contain the comment text and a link to the record view with the comments sidebar open.
In-app notifications will be coming soon!
