If you want to use the Comments feature on OneDrive files on mobile and web, this guide will be handy for you. Here is everything you need to know about the OneDrive Comments on any file so that you can take notes, chat with someone on a project, etc. As mentioned, you can find the same feature on the web version as well as the mobile app.
What does the Comment do on OneDrive files?
Let’s assume that more than one person is editing a OneDrive file – let’s say it is a document. If they are sitting next to each other, there won’t be an issue. However, if they live in two different locations, it will be a mess to collaborate with each other when editing the document in real-time. If you use the Comments, you can communicate with each other, making things easier to edit the document. Similarly, let’s assume that you have shared the project with five or ten people and want to get some feedback. Instead of making a call, your viewers can comment on the file.
For your information, you can comment on any file that you created or uploaded on OneDrive. For example, whether it is an image, document, spreadsheet, presentation, or anything else, you can make a comment. The best thing is that you can use the Comment feature on mobile as well as on the computer.
For this example, we are going to show the process of commenting on an image. However, you can do the same on PDF, documents, and other files.
