Structured Comments

Each kind of comment has a type so that Uclusion can adjust logic and route notifications.

Comment

Top level comments are backed by the same diff mechanism shown for Workspaces. So when you change something collaborators will be notified and see what changed.

Blocking Issues

Opening a blocking issue on a story does the following

  • If not already there, story changes stage to Blocked and expiration of approvals begins
  • Removes notifications that no longer apply like the notification to approve
  • Everyone except the creator receives a critical notification. These notifications remain until the issue is resolved.

Questions

If an assignee opens a question on a story, it does the following

  • If not already there, story changes stage to ‘Requires Input’
  • Removes notifications that no longer apply like the notification to approve
  • Everyone except the creator receives a critical, if mentioned, or delayable notification. These notifications remain until the question is resolved.

Additionally, the ‘Add Option’ button on the created question can be used to gather approvals on possible answers, see Decisions. Also see Dialogs as the configuration and promotion / demotion of options described there is also available on the Question.

Clicking inside an option allows editing, voting, commenting and access to the navigation panel:

Suggestions

An assignee opening a suggestion on a story will have the same effect as listed above for questions.

Additionally, the ‘Allow voting’ checkbox on the created suggestion can be used to gather votes, see Decisions.

Reports

See Status for details on when assignees must open reports. See Feedback for an explanation of ‘Required Approvers’ and ‘Review Reports’.

Creating a new report resolves all previous reports. The previous reports will still show in the resolved section of the story.

The ‘Notify All’ checkbox can be used on a Report to send a delayable notification to everyone. Otherwise, reports are informational notifications only except for an assignee and a ‘Review Report’.

Additionally, using a mention in a report sends a notification that remains until the mentioned person replies.

Todos

See the Ready for Feedback in the overview section for details of story Todos and feedback. Opening a story Todo prevents the story from moving to ‘Verified’ stage.

Any story Todo can be moved to its own story by using the ‘Move to Story’ button.
