To add a new comment or to see existing report comments, users need to open the Comments tab in the report sidebar.

Following actions are available, based on the user role:

  • See existing comments
  • Delete comments
  • Add new comments
  • Search comments

The sidebar displayed comments added to the report, as well as comments added directly to the views (see below). In case of comments added directly to a view, users can click on a chain icon to highlight the view.

Searching comments

It is possible to search comments displayed in the sidebar. When searching, users can use special characters "%" and ".".

Private comments

Users can also add private comments. These comments are visible only to the author of the comment. To add a private comment, enable the option "Private".

Private comment can be identified by a special icon:

If a table is using nested subsets and one the child has a comment, the parent member is highlighted as well (a light red color triangle).

Adding global comments

When the global comments are enabled, the comments panel displays only the report related comments.


When the global comments are enabled, the comments are propagated to all the views based on the context (indicator and attribute) applied in the view. Global comments are propagated to tables, charts, and KPI labels.


The Global comments feature needs to be enabled in the domain administration.
