Object Comments

Note: This content is no longer updated. For the latest content, please go to the user guide for M-Files Online. For information on the supported product versions, refer to our lifecycle policy.

You can add comments to objects in the vault with the Comments function. Click the comments icon () on the metadata card to see the comments of an object. You can only add comments for objects for which you have edit permissions, and only when you are not using a read-only license. As an exception, you can add a comment for an object when you change its workflow state.

Note: Comments keep their permission settings. Only users defined in the permission settings, when the comment was added, can see these comments.
