InVision Cloud V7: Commenting

This article provides answers for InVision Cloud V7. If you’re on V6 of InVision, read this article instead. Not sure which version you're using? Find out now.

With comment mode, you can collaborate by having asynchronous conversations on a prototype. You can start new annotated comment threads, reply to existing comments, mention important people, and even add emoji. If you want to keep conversations private to just your team, you can start private threads.


Adding comments

To add a comment to a document screen in the InVision:

  1. In the main navigation area, click Documents and open the document you want to comment on.
  2. Click the comment icon or press the C key.
  3. Click anywhere you want to start a new comment thread, and type your comment. Or click an existing comment, and type your reply.
  4. Click Post, or press Command + Enter.

To leave a comment (or access a document) in InVision, you must be signed in to InVision. Also, it’s not currently possible to add a general comment to the prototype; you’ll need to add comments to specific screens instead.

To add a comment on a document you’re viewing via a public link:

  1. Click the link or paste the URL into your browser’s URL bar.
  2. Click the comment icon or press the C key.
  3. Click the area you want to comment on, and type your comment.
  4. Click Post, or press Command + Enter.

To add a private comment that only members of your team can see, follow steps 1 - 3 in either set of instructions above; then, click the gray lock icon (invision-cloud-v7-private-comment-lock-icon.png) that appears in the lower-right corner of the comment modal after you begin typing, as seen here:


If you don't have editing permissions for the document, you will not have access to click (or see) the lock icon for private comments.

Notifying people about comments

To notify a specific person about your comment, @ mention the person by name or email address.

Using emoji in comments

To add emoji to your comments, click the emoji icon within the comment modal. Use the Arrow keys to navigate, and then click the emoji you want to use.

To open the emoji autocomplete menu, press the : (colon) key. Then, type the name of the emoji you want to use and click the result or—once the emoji is selected—simply press Enter.
