To learn more about using Site Comments, visit Duda University.
Site Comments is a collaboration tool that enables your team to communicate with clients and each other while building sites. The entire review process is faster, clearer and more accurate, giving your clients better service, faster go-live, and allowing more time to scale your business. It also eliminates the need for alternative methods of communication (such as email, messages, phone calls, etc.) and creates a single channel for receiving feedback and responding to it.
- Internal communication between team members only (these comments can be marked as Internal - visible to team only so clients do not see them)
- Collecting feedback from clients as they review the site
- Making notes while building the site
- During the QA process
- Creating a record of comments and responses

Invite Clients to Add Comments
Inviting clients to add site comments is great customer service and improves the site design experience.
To add clients to site comments:
- If clients do not already have permissions to the site you will need to add them via Client Management. For more information, see Client Management.
- After they have access to the site, click the share icon on the right panel to open the Notification Setting.
- Choose Add Client Permissions.
- Select their name in the drop-down menu.
Once a client has been added to the site, they can review and add comments. They will also start to receive email notifications when someone adds, replies or resolves comments on their sites.
To remove clients from a site, click Remove next to their name. They will no longer have the site comments permission; other permissions will stay as is.
By default, clients with Site Comments permissions receive email notifications when a public comment is added to the site. However, account owners and team members do not receive these notifications by default.
To enable email notifications when comments are added for team members:
- In the editor, click the Show Site Comments () button in the top navigation bar.
- Click the Permissions & Notifications () icon.
- Under Notified Team Members, select the team members you want to receive email notifications when site comments are added to the site.
