There are two ways to add comments to Oneflow contracts:
- From the application
Click on the Comment tab located to the right of your contract view and write your comment in the comment field. Choose if you want to post a Public comment, i. e. everyone can see it, or a Private comment, i.e. only you and/or your colleagues can see it. Private comments will not be added to the final PDF of the contract.
* Please note: Private comments are visible to all colleagues that are participants in the contract, regardless if you direct the comment to a specific colleague or not. Directing a comment to a specific colleague means that only that colleague will receive a notification about the added comment, but it is still visible to all internal participants.
- From your email inbox
If you reply to a contract invitation via Oneflow, your emails to your counterpart will be added as a public comment automatically.
Your invitation e-mail will be added as the first comment to the contract, and anything posted as a public comment will be included into the PDF copy of the contract.
Can I comment on a signed contract?
Yes! The comment field is open after the contract has been signed, but comments added after signing will not be added to the PDF and your counterparty will not receive any notifications.
Can I make changes to comments after they've been posted?
No, you can't edit comments after you've posted them, so we recommend that you give your comment a quick review before hitting that "Post comment"- or "Send-button!
I can't write a comment!
If your contract hasn't been sent to a counterparty yet, i. e. it's still marked as a Draft, you can't write any comments. Send the contract first to unlock the comment field.
My counterparty hasn't opened the contract yet, but they've left a comment. How?
Any e-mail sent as a reply to the contract invitation will be added as a public comment. This means that your counterparty can add comments without having opened the contract. If they're having trouble opening the contract, please check this article.
