Posting a Comment

To add a new comment, simply type your message in the “Add a comment” bar towards the bottom of the action card and click “Post” (or press “Command+ Enter”).

@ Mention Specific Teammates

You can address your comment to a specific teammate by @ mentioning them within the comment. Start by typing the "@" symbol immediately followed by the first few characters of their name, to select them. They will receive a notification once the comment has been posted.

@ Mention Action Card Followers

By typing "@action", a direct notification will be sent to all followers of the action card, without you have to individually tag them.

@ Mention All Project Members

By typing "@project", a direct notification will be sent to all project members.

Attaching Files

If you need to include a file in your comment, you can easily add an attachment by clicking the paperclip icon. Attachments that are added with comments will also be uploaded to the attachments section of the action card.

Editing or Deleting Comments

If you want to edit one of your comments, just hover over the comment, click the pencil icon, and make the appropriate changes. Don’t forget to click “Save Changes.”

To delete one of your comments, hover over it and click on the trash can icon.

Only the comment writer may delete or edit comments.

Spell check

If you make a mistake when typing a comment, Hive will let you know about it by highlighting the word with red dots beneath it. You will then be able to correct it manually or right-click it and select the correct word from the available options. You can also let Hive learn the spelling if it's actually not a mistake so that it doesn't get "flagged" to you in the future.

Read/Unread Comments

To see if any comments are left unread, navigate to Table View and enable the 'Comments' column. An orange comment bubble will appear when there is an unread comment for your action card. This makes it super easy for you to stay up to date with any new comments and ensure you never miss a thing. Managing your work just got a whole lot more convenient!

Sort comments by date

Click 'Sort' to switch the order of comments and show the newest comments at the top or vice versa (chronologically).
