In several places it is possible to comment on the context just considered. This area is labeled "Activities" or equivalent and can be accessed via the "Chat" icon (1) in the details area. There are also automatically generated entries listed, for example, in the case of orders, when they have undergone a status change.
An input field allows the entry of text that is published after confirmation by 'Enter' or via the button to the right of the text field.To the right of the input field with button, a switch between 'private' and 'global' can be selected.
Comments marked as "Private" (2) are only visible within your own company. Comments marked "Global" (3) are visible to all participants of the platform who have public access to the object (eg company or product). An order, for example, is an object that is only visible between 2 participants, so a global comment is only visible to the order participants.
Comments entered appear continuously below the input area, new entries above. The creator of a comment can also delete it.
Depending on the application, it may also be that comments are always private and can not be made visible to the public. In some cases, no manual comments are possible, which limits the scope of activity to just displaying messages. This is the case in the screenshot shown above, which summarizes the comments on all products. On the respective product page a comment can be deposited.
