How we can limit the comments view



We have a project that need's to be shared with the client.  We would have some of the comments for internal consumption which shouldn't be seen by the client.  Even though the client should have the access to update the comment tab.


Thank you

Welcome to the community. You can restrict the access to a comment by clicking on the padlock icon then you will be able to allow some project role or group to view your comment.

Thank you Mohamed Benziane 

 I am unable to see the padlock icon. Please guide me on how to enable the padlock icon.

What type of projet are you using (team managed, company managed) ?

Can you go to the general setting and look for the" comment visibility" option.

I have both teams managed & company managed.


I have changed the "comment visibility" option from "Project Roles only" to "Groups & Project Roles"


Still, I can't see the padlock icon.

I can see see the padlock icon in company managed project.
