Threaded Comments

Send threaded comments to answer questions or give feedback while leaving the main comment feed focused on the work at hand.

To start a thread, press the arrow icon on an existing comment or use the Shift+R shortcut. To collapse threads when viewing an issue, use Shift+X or the command menu.

When a threaded comment is sent to an issue you subscribe to, you'll receive a notification to your inbox.
