Commenting on various content items (i.e., blog posts, documents, discussions, ideas, questions, etc.) is a strong part of community participation. Making your comments richer with media, images, and photos can help to enhance your thoughts and feedback.

 

Navigate to the content item to which you want to reply or comment

Content items include documents, discussions, questions, blog posts, events, polls and ideas.

 

Click 'add a comment' link (or 'reply' link for discussions and other comments)

Blog posts, documents, ideas all have 'add a comment' link. Discussions, questions and other user comments only have the 'reply' link available.

 

Click 'image' icon in the Rich Content Editor to insert an image

 

Choose an image from computer or post (URL) from the web

 

 

NOTE: You can also click and drag images and videos from computer directly into your comment page.

 

Click 'video' icon to insert video

Unfortunately, you cannot embed video via HTML button because your embed code will be stripped.

 

Insert video

Upload, record, or embed your video. Then click the Insert Video button.

 

Click 'add comment' button
