Comments provide a way to communicate with Annotators, Reviewers, Annotators & Reviewers, Team Managers, and Admins within Annotation projects and Active projects.

Comments are supported across Annotate and Active, meaning comments made in Annotate can be seen in Active and comments made in Active can be seen in Annotate.
