[AppInsights] Features - Collaboration: posting and viewing comments

The Collaboration feature allows users to make comments on any widget on a dashboard that they have permission to edit. These comments can then be viewed at any time by users who have access to the dashboard.

Adding a comment:

To add a comment to a widget, click on the full-screen icon at the top right of your widget (next to the gear icon).

Once the widget expands to fit your screen, you will see the comments bar on the right. Type in your comment in the space at the bottom of the sidebar and you will see the comments appear at the top. Comments will come in chronological order (newest at the bottom) and each includes the email address of your user account as well as a timestamp of when the comment was made. You can return to the dashboard by clicking on the breadcrumb link in the top left.
