Working with comments on your Zoho Sheet spreadsheet

Working with comments on your Zoho Sheet spreadsheet

Why should you use comments?

You can make cell or range or sheet level comments in Zoho Sheet. These comments can further be replied to, resolved or re-opened for further discussion. You can even @mention your collaborators on your comments to bring these comments to their notice, and if needed, you can notify collaborators directly from your spreadsheets. All of this is to make Zoho Sheet a little more collaborative, and easier for your  team to work together on.
