Communicate on Your Tasks with Comments

TeamGantt does more than just project scheduling. It’s a collaborative platform that allows you to keep all your files and conversations in one place, right where you need them. 

Comments can be accessed by clicking the comment bubble next to the project title or task name or by double-clicking a task bar in the gantt chart to open the task detail window.

Leveraging comments

Comments are user-specific and can be used to keep relevant task, group, and project-related communications easily accessible and in one place. 

Notifying your team

Comments work best when others know you left it there. Here's how to notify your team when adding a comment:

  • To notify all project participants, begin your comment with @project. 
  • To notify only users assigned to the task, begin your comment with @assigned. 
  • To notify a specific team member, select the user's name from the Want to notify anyone drop-down list, or begin your comment with @username. You can notify as many or as few people as you need!

Uploading documents

You can also upload documents directly to task, group, and project-level comments. TeamGantt supports version control, so it's easy to update the latest version of any document.

Leveraging notes

Each task contains a single sticky note that can be used for general project highlights. You could use this feature to outline high-level notes on project scope or to share the URL to an important project file, such as a link to a Google Doc or DropBox file. The note is "pinned" to the top of each comment thread and can be edited by any user.
