When reviewing a 2D document or 3D model in CoLab you can easily bring comments, feedback, and design issues to the attention of your team, stakeholders, customers and partners.
You can create feedback in the form of issues, tasks, comments and markups. The intended use for the different feedback types are described below:
Issue: Problem that needs to be addressed that requires broader tracking and more details. Example: When completing a design review, you find that there is a clash and raise an issue that says “Clash between chassis and brake mount”
Task: An action that needs to be completed that isn’t necessarily a problem. Example: When working on your design, you might add a Task to “Complete FEA Analysis”
Comment: A smaller note to share with a designer that requires a smaller change that’s important, but not something you’d want cluttering up a dashboard of real issues. Example: When reviewing a drawing you may add a comment that the “Title block is missing information”
Markup: When completing a full markup of a drawing and you don’t want to create individual comments per markup, the markup type is designated so you can easily find bulk sets of markups.
With issues and tasks, you can add extra details. The intended use is for them to be trackable items that are traceable within the dashboard. Comments and markups are short-form feedback having only a title, status, assignee and comment attached to them. The intended use is for them to sit directly in the file without the need for them to be traceable through the dashboard. Comments and markups are intended to avoid diluting issues and tasks with small notes for minor issues (ex: typos or formatting).
