Commenting in Retrospectives
Note: Commenting in Retrospectives is currently available in a private beta.
Users who are participating in a retrospective after an incident are now able to leave comments on any fields where they or their teammates have entered content. Additionally, they can leave comments on starred timeline items both during an incident and after an incident.
For any field where comments are available, click the “Comments” button below the field. If comments have been added to that field already, you will see a count of the existing comments.
For any field or timeline item where you can add a comment, you will find an input field at the bottom of each commenting section where you can enter a new comment. The commenting input supports markdown, and so you can add styling, links, block quotes and more to your comments.
We use Github Flavored Markdown, and you can read more about that style of Markdown in GitHub’s documentation.
For comments that you have added to a thread, you are able to edit the content of that comment or remove it altogether.
Because comments are largely internal and review oriented, we are not including comments in PDF exports of retrospectives for any fields or timeline items.
