During a Review process, the reviewer of a ship profile can get the option to add comments per field and get answers from profile owner. This feature is subjected to settings on the profile owner's end, i.e. the company requesting the review can decide if comments are allowed or not.
Note that comments are a part of a review process and therefore only become available when ship profile is being reviewed. The comments are considered to be a part of the work process of getting a ship profile reviewed and are NOT shown on print (PDF) version of a ship profile.
It should also be noted that no notifications (emails) are sent related to addition of comments.
For review processes where profile owner allows comments, a coment icon is displayed at the end of each field's line.
- Empty comment icon - no comment has been added
- Filled comment icon - comment has been added on your side
- Filled double comment icon - comment has been added by the counterparty
The Specification can also be filtered to show only fields that have comments.
Adding and editing a comment
Comments are added by clicking on the comments icon which shows a modal as shown below. Note that comment are per field and in the example below the Length (LOA) is being discussed. Comments made by the reviewer are shown aligned to the left and profile owner aligned to the right and comments are always displayed the order they are written.
All users with view access to a ship profile can view comments and users with edit rights can add comments. Writer of an individual comment can also remove that comment.
If comments have been added to a review process, it is also indicated on the Review tab as shown below where total of three comments have been added to two fields. By clicking on the notification, the user is taken to the Specification tab with comments filter applied.
