Leaving comments on item sets

When creating an item set, you can leave comments for other Surpass users who might also be working on the same item set. You can add item set-level comments that apply to the whole item set or an inline comment that refers to the item set’s shared question text. This is useful as part of the quality review process, especially if multiple users are working on the same item set.

This article explains how to create, view, and reply to both item set comments and inline comments.
