Excel 2019: New Threaded Comments Allow Conversations
March 12, 2019 - by Bill Jelen
Threaded comments debuted in 2018. When you insert a comment, Excel stores the comment, the author, the date, and time. When a co-worker sees your comment, they can click Reply and add a new comment to the same cell. Each set of comments lists the author, date, and time.
These new threaded comments are indicated by a five-sided purple shape instead of the red triangle used for the old style comments (now known as Notes).
If you are using Excel Online, you have a choice for Comments or Chat. While comments are stored in the workbook, anything typed in Chat will be deleted when you close the workbook.
