Comments against action items

Allow user to add comments against action items - for clarification and updates on items that run over a number of board cycles. Have Seen this practice with several boards now.

    I consider it essential that people assigned Actions can add progress updates on these. These updates should be date and time stamped

    Hi Yes this would definitely ensure closing the loop and things not getting lost in emails

    Yes please, if this function would be made available it would help with minute taking. I would be willing to test!

    This would be a very useful feature. Especially for projects/action items that are carried over more than one board meeting.

    It would be great to clarify the journey of an action all in one place for referring back to. Adding a comment section would solve this.

    Hi BoardPro - any plans to tidy up comments against actions? I'm still having to manually add my initials and a manual time stamp. This gets really messy if everyone has their own way of updating task notes.

    Second vote for adding the action item to outlook calendar - or even a setting control for the user that is add all due dates and a reminder 5 days prior for any action items assigned to me

    I would also Like to be able to add comments.  As the chair to Any Action Item but as a director to my own.

    Also the ability to indicate the percentage complete would be very useful

    One thing that's come up in using BoardPro is a question about how to (or if you can?) add comments to action points so that when the action points are reported back in board papers the person who owns the action point can have their comments or updates reported.  eg "X is away overseas, back mid-February - will follow up then."
    Is it possible to add comments to an action point - I can't see how to do this? 
    Update: I have subsequently been advised that only the Admin can update the action point.  Surely the person who has been allocated the action should be able to make notes to record updates? 
    This shortcoming in functionality significantly reduces the value of the Action Point system.

    Hi BoardPro Team - is this old suggestion going to be implemented? We're still manually having to add tags like "GN 12/03" before comments inside actions to keep track of this.

    How is this enhancement going? It's really frustrating me still, and making a mess of good notes/action point lists as you can see in the attachment.

    I manually enter "GN 9/10 - " before any comments so that it's clear, but it's hard to get a whole business manually following such a practice. As such, there is no clarity on who added the comment or when (see attached).
