Comments are used to provide written feedback on the progress of the project. The comments are written by the Project Manager and the audience for the comments are the Project Owners, Sponsor and the Project Office. The Comments entity can be renamed, depending on the requirement. For more details on re-naming entities, see the following knowledge base article.
The following fields appear on the Comments entity be default:
A default set of comments are automatically added to each new project that's registered on PPO. The default set is defined either in the System Configuration or on a Template Project depending on your instance configuration. For more information and how to change the comments that are created, please refer to this FAQ.
The Type field on the comment indicates whether the comment will appear on the Project Manager Dashboard. If the comment type is set to Dashboard Comment, the comment will appear on the Project Manager Dashboard for that project.
For example, the comment type for the Milestones & Deliverables Planned for this Period comment is Dashboard Comment.
Therefore the Milestones & Deliverables Planned for this Period will appear on the Project Manager dashboard for the Sales Recovery Pilot project.
If the type is not set to Dashboard comment, the comment will not appear on the Project Manager Dashboard. This rule can be applied to other dashboards, if required.
For more information on this and other Dashboards, see the following knowledge base article.
