Leave a note

If you want to leave some feedback on an article in a private way, leaving a note is the best way to do so.

Leaving notes

  1. On a draft or a published post, select the text you want to comment on.
  2. Click the lock 🔒 icon from the pop-up toolbar.
  3. Write your note.

If you do not see this option in the toolbar, it is because the author has turned off private notes.


  • When you leave a note, it will be only visible to you and the author of the post. If the post is in a publication, the editors of the publication will also be able to see the note.
  • The author will receive a notification letting them know that you left a note on their post.
  • If you don't want anyone to leave private notes on your posts, you can turn them off in your Settings.
