Comments and Mentions

MeisterTask helps you keep all task-related conversations in one central place, so you don't have to switch back and forth between your email inbox, your task manager, and other communication channels.

The bottom part of the task dialog offers space where collaborators can discuss the task, give feedback, 'Like' other people's comments and activities, and mention team members to include them in the conversation.

When you leave a comment on a task, the task assignee and all task watchers receive a notification. If you mention a team member in a comment, that member receives a notification, too. 

How to Leave Comments:

Simply click on a task to open the task detail dialog and write your comment in the designated field under "Activity".

To mention another team member, put an @ sign before their name.

When you're finished with your comment, click "Say it" or press Enter.

To delete a comment, hover over it until the little triangle button appears, click on it and select "Delete" from the menu.

In the same menu, you can also select "Edit" to edit your comment in case you made a mistake.
