Collect & manage feedback from stakeholders

Gallery makes it easy to track feedback from your entire team. All users with access to a project can leave feedback on designs by adding comments or annotations. Comment threads and annotations help keep conversations focused. 

Features include

  • Comment threads
  • Annotations for visual feedback
  • Integration with Google Contacts for +mentions
  • Notifications
  • Archivable comments 

Track new comments

A notification is sent any time a new comment is made. Users must subscribe to notifications for all new comments and replies in Gallery to receive updates. 

To indicate that a project has new comments, the Comment button  has a yellow dot in the top-right corner.
