4.5 Document Comments
This section is about document comments: comments that can be added to Daisy documents. More precisely, they are actually added to document variants, thus each variant of a document has its own comments.
4.5.1 Comment features
The current Daisy comments system is rather simple (text-only comments, no editing after creation, no threading) but nonetheless very useful.
18.104.22.168 Comment visibility
Each comment has a certain visibility:
- public comments: everyone who can read the document can see them,
- editors-only comments: only users who have write access to the document can see them,
- private comments: only the creator of the comment can see them.
22.214.171.124 Creation of comments
Everyone who has read access to a document can add comments to it. Editors-only comments can however only be created by users with write access to the document.
126.96.36.199 Deletion of comments
Comments can be removed from a document by the users who have write access to the document (this includes users acting in the Administrator role). Private comments can be deleted by its creator, independent of whether that user has write access to the document the comment belongs too.
When a document is deleted, all its associated comments are removed too, including private ones that the deleter of the document may not be aware of.
