Add comments to files in reviews

You can add comments to files in a review and collaborate with team members.

Each reviewer receives an email with a snippet of the code and the review comments. This is different to adding a comment to an entire review.

Guidelines and behaviors:

  • Comments are tied to the file version where they were added and shown when that version is displayed.
  • Comments are not added to the actual file versions.
  • You can add comments to reviews at specific states.
  • You can edit your own comments until there is a reply.

To add a comment to a file in a review:

  1. In PulseUno, navigate to Spaces and select a space.

  2. (Optional) Select a product or Git repository, and a stream or branch.

  3. In the sidebar, select Reviews, and open a review from the review list.

  4. On the review page, select the Changes tab.

  5. Find the file you want to comment on. In the line number column, click and drag to select the lines where you want to add a comment.

  6. In the comment box, enter your comment. You can format the comment using the toolbar buttons or Markdown syntax. For details, see Markdown syntax reference.
  7. (Optional) You can email comments to users who are not included in a review, for example, when you want the opinions of other developers.

    1. Click User mention in the toolbar, or enter the @ character in the comment box.

    2. Enter the name of a registered user, for example, @username.

      PulseUno automatically displays the list of users that match.

      Tip: If a username contains spaces, use the following syntax: @[username with spaces].

    3. Repeat to add additional users.

  8. To preview your comment, click Preview.

  9. To add the comment, click Comment. Your comment is now visible to your team members, and their responses will be displayed in the same comment box.
