When working with spreadsheets, you can comment only on one cell at a time. Spreadsheet cells with comments are indicated by a yellow triangle in the cell's top-right corner.
To see all of a sheet's comments, click on the comment icon on the sheet's tab.
In addition to comments, you can also leave notes on individual cells. While comments are great for conversations, notes are useful for adding annotations that don't require a back-and-forth discussion.
To add a note:
After inserting a comment, there are two main places you can work with it — within the yellow comment box, or from within the discussions thread, which you can access by clicking the Comments button in the top right-hand corner of your browser window.
You can reply to a comment with a new post, edit or delete a previous comment you’ve inserted, and resolve the discussion when you’re ready to remove it. Resolving a discussion removes the discussion from your document, spreadsheet, or presentation, but resolved threads will always be available under Comments in the right-hand corner of your document.
From the discussion thread, you can review all discussions, including those discussions that have been resolved. From this menu, you can also change the notification settings for discussions.
Sometimes it can be tedious to have to scan through all the comments you and your collaborators have made on an item. If you open the discussion thread with the Comments button, you can keep track of all of an item's discussions, including those that have already been resolved. In this view, you can also make comments about the entire document, spreadsheet, or presentation.
