Team and Public Comments

There are two types of Comments in UXPin, Team and Public.

  • Team Comments – comments that are only visible to your Team. Your Team are all the users that you have added as Team members in the Team Management
  • Public Comments – comments that are visible to anyone, even if they don’t have a UXPin account.

You can change the type of a comment. To do that, click on the three-dot icon in the comment field and choose Make Public or Make Team Only, depending on the current type of your Comment. 

When you share a design with someone who doesn’t have a UXPin account, they can still comment on your design. If you want to disable comments on your prototype, uncheck the Show Comments option on the Share modal.

Email Notifications

By default, all members added to the project you’re working on are automatically notified when a new comment is added, but you can choose who gets the email and who doesn't.

When adding a comment, you will see a Notify section in the top right corner of the pop up. You can choose to notify Project members (default), All, or None.
