Working with Improvement comments

 How do I access an Improvement's comments?

All the comments currently attached to an Improvement are displayed in the "Comments" section.

Open the Improvement with which you want to work. From there, there are three ways you can get to the "Comments" section:

  • Click 2017-08-09_1511.png in the action bar

    Clicking this button will automatically move the cursor to the comment entry field. If you're looking to add a new comment, this can save you a little time.

OR

  • Open the "Comments" tab so that only the "Comments" section will be displayed.

OR

  • Scroll down in the main tab until you see the "Comments" section.
