Rich Text Comments

NOTE: Most modern browsers support rich text comments, but this feature may not be available in certain browsers, such as Internet Explorer.

When selecting projects, tasks, documents, and requests, Workzone provides a rich text (WYSIWYG - "What You See Is What You Get") editor that can alter the appearance and formatting of comments to provide enhanced communication. There is a toolbar above the "Add a comment..." box with the following options (numbers are added for reference below):
