Adding a Comment

In Vizlib Teamwork, the comments window (Figure 2) allows you to add or edit comments using the text area at the bottom of a screen. There are also comment features for adding extra data (Table 1).

Table 1: Add Comment Buttons

Attach inline image - adds an image of the data visualization you want to share. When you select it, you'll see the visualization highlighted.
Attach dataset - adds the visualization data as an XLS format. When you select it, you'll see the visualization highlighted. 
Emoji - adds an emoji.
Private note - Adds a private note in the stream (not visible to any other users). 

When you click the image or dataset icon and add it to the comment, it will be highlighted in the bottom bar and appear inside the comment box. If you click the icon again, it will no longer be attached to the comment. You can also use Mentions to address other users by typing @ and selecting a name from the list.
