Adding Comments to a Question or Item
The comments feature allows Illume users to communicate with each other regarding the items contained within a survey. It is possible to add comments to any question or Text/HTML item in a survey. Comments are available only to those editing the survey; participants cannot see them.
Once a survey is checked into the database, any comments added in the most recent round of editing become read-only. Others may contribute additional comments, but comments cannot be altered once checked in.
