I am trying to find a way to enable a user to go back to a previous comment he/she made, make changes or delete it. The system allows for visibility control. Is there a way to allow a user to make changes or delete a previously made comment?
Unfortunately, no. Comments cannot be edited, and the only way to delete a comment is via the builder.
Darren_Murphy can we use the inline list to display the comments and when that user clicks that comment he can delete it and edit?
No, comments are stored internally in Glide and the only way to display them is with the Comments component.
If you are using Google Sheets, you will see an
App: Comments sheet, which contains a copy of all comments made in the app. But this sheet is not used in the Glide app, and modifying the data in this sheet will have no impact on what is seen in the app.
Thanks for the reply Darren_Murphy
Darren_Murphy when we create a sheet or a table for the comments can we?
You can certainly create your own comments functionality, yes.
But this is different, and if you do that you won’t be able to use the comments component for your “custom” comments.
Ah thanks Darren_Murphy
Thanks a lot Darren_Murphy for the clarification. That is good to know.
