Marking comments and replies

You can mark the comments or replies of discussions, documents, or blog posts in places where you have permission to comment or reply. After you mark an item, you see a badge on it. This helps others quickly see what has been decided on or a success, for example.

To mark a comment or reply:

  1. Go to a discussion, question, document, or blog post and read through the comments or replies.
  2. Select the mark you want.
