How to use comments

Start a discussion on almost any page

Discussions aren't just for forums anymore! On your ThoughtFarmer intranet almost every page allows comments, which lets you start a discussion wherever you need to. When you add a comment, an in-app notification of your comment automatically goes to people that are following the page. This may include the page owner and people who have edited or commented on or favorited the page. Depending on individual user settings, these people may also receive email notifications with the text of your comment.

With ubiquitous commenting you can turn a blog post, a page of HR instructions, or anything else on the intranet into a useful discussion. Each of your comments will be accompanied by a thumbnail of your profile photo, which helps bring discussions to life.

Click "Add comment" at bottom of a page

Most intranet pages allow comments. To post a comment, scroll to the bottom of a page, click "Add comment", type in your comment and then click "Post comment." If there are already comments on the page, instead of having to click "Add comment", you'll find that a comment box is already open and waiting for your comment!

If you want to respond to a specific comment, click "Quote" at the bottom of the comment. The commenter's name and the text of the comment will be copied into the open comment box. You can then add your comment and post it.

You can insert images and links in comments and use most of the same text formatting available when you edit a page. (See complete instructions on how to insert links and how to insert images.)

Like a comment

Click "Like" below a comment to show that you like it or agree with it. Once you "like" a comment, the thumbs up icon shows in color. A number beside the thumbs up shows the number of people that have liked the comment. Click on the number to display a pop-up showing which users like the comment. To "unlike" a comment, click "Unlike".
