Commenting on cards

Comments allow you to engage in a conversation on the back of a card.


You can add comments to a card via the "Write a comment..." textbox in the "Activity" section of the card back.

Add a comment to get the conversation going.

Add an attachment

Add an attachment to the activity feed while making comments on a card by clicking the paperclip icon and selecting the file that you would like to attach to your card.

@ Mentions

You can mention people in comments by using "@" followed by the user's name or by clicking the @ icon below the comment input field then selecting the members you would like to mention. The mentioned user(s) will get a notification about the comment.

Add emoji

You can also add emoji to your comment from the smile icon beneath the comment input field or by using colons around your emoji term (ie. :emoji:).   Business Class and Trello Gold subscribers can upload custom emoji.

Add a card link

To quickly add a card link to a comment either click the Trello icon or type " # " followed by the name of the card that you would like to link to in your comment.  A window will populate with the card titles that match your text and you can select the card to link to.

Editing & Deleting

Edit or delete comments by clicking the "edit" or "delete" links beneath the comment. You can edit or delete any comment you make on any board. Board admins can delete comments made by any non admins on their boards. Deleting a comment is permanent. 

Click "Edit" or "Delete" to edit or delete a comment.

Working with others

If another user is typing a comment at the same time as you, you'll see their avatar above the comment box, with a speech bubble.
