Comment on page


Comments is one of the most basic features of the collaboration at SQUARS. With Comments, your team can reach your goal faster by reacting to each others' feedback in real-time and making quick, instant decisions. This feature is available on the SQUARS STUDIO project.
Who can use Comments:
  • All members included in the group project
  • Workspace members Invited to my project
The invited user can join the project and leave comments even if they do not belong to the group. However, the user must be a member of the Workspace.
