Comments are an easy way to have conversations about what is happening in your Coda docs. There are 2 different ways you can be notified of comments in your doc: by participating in a thread or by subscribing to comment notifications. 

Notifications for threads you participate in

If you participate in a comment thread or are explicitly mentioned by a teammate, you'll always receive notifications for further interaction in that thread. It's not currently possible to opt out of these notifications.

Subscribing to comment notifications

If you don't participate in or get mentioned in a thread, but want to stay abreast of new comments on a particular part of your doc, you can subscribe to comments. 

You can subscribe to the following objects in a doc:

  • Rows
  • Tables
  • Sections
  • The entire doc

Note that you are subscribed by default to comments on any object you create. You can opt out of these notifications, and opt in to notifications on any objects you don't create. Subscription to any object will be indicated by a bell icon. More on each below:

How to subscribe and unsubscribe to comments on an individual row

Click "All comments" to be notified of any comment activity in the table. Likewise, click "Mentions and subscribed only" to only be notified of the default activity.

Click "All comments" to be notified of any comment activity in the section. Likewise, click "Mentions and subscribed only" to only be notified of the default activity.

How to subscribe and unsubscribe to comments for an entire doc

You can manage comment subscription settings for your entire doc by going the gear icon > Doc Settings > Notifications. Click "All comments" to be notified of any comment activity in the doc. Likewise, click "Mentions and subscribed only" to manage subscriptions at the section, table, and row level.

Subscribing people to a row where they're mentioned in a People column

When you add a new People column to a table, you'll have the option to both notify a user in your team when they're first added to the column and to subscribe the person to comments on that row when they're added. 

These settings are both toggled on by default, but can be set off in the column's format settings.
