Comments are a useful tool that help to build upon the original input. There are two different types of comments, automatically generated and user generated. Automatically generated comments provide a log of what the input has been through and user generated comments help to clarify the input.

Comments are visible according to the visibility of the input. Learn how to comment on inputs here.

Automatically generated comments appear in grey directly under the comments title, with the date and time of the action and the name of the user that completed it.
