Managing Course Comments


The Comments feature in Absorb LMS allows learners to communicate with one another via comments and replies within a chat thread.  Comments can be enabled for both Online Courses, ILC Courses, and Curriculum.  This article will describe how to access and administer Course Comments via the Comments Report.




Comments Report

The Comments Report displays a list of comments and responses for every Course that has enabled the Comments setting.

  1. To access the Comments Report, select the Courses icon() and then select Comments

    • You will be prompted to the Comment Report. Here you can filter the Comments Report by Course Name, Comments, Replies, etc.

  2. You can also choose Add Comment in the Actions menu of the right-side menu bar to add a new comment.
    • Once you click on Add Comment, you will be prompted to the Add New Comment forum, where you can select the Course you wish to comment on, along with a section to fill in the post comment or add a file. 

  3. If you select a comment, the Actions menu on the right will update, and allow you to click on Manage Comment.
    • The Manage Comment page will provide you with an area to make any necessary changes. 

    • As an Admin, you can use the Write a comment area to add a comment to the Course if desired.

    • The Attach a file paperclip button allows you to attach a file to submit your comments. 

  4. Admins also have the ability to reply to any of the course's existing comments. This functions the same as the Post Comment area, with the ability to attach a file as well.
    • You can choose to pin a comment to the top of the page in the Learner Interface by clicking on the pushpin icon.
    • Comments can be deleted by clicking on the trash can icon. 

Note: When a comment is deleted, any replies to that comment are also deleted.
