Add comments

Comments are great when you're looking for feedback and interaction on your padlet.

Allowing comments

To enable comments, open the Settings panel of your padlet by clicking the Settings cog icon (⚙️) and go to the Engagement options. Then, toggle the button next to 'Comments' to the ON position.

When this feature is enabled, everyone will be able to comment in real time. Even if your padlet is set to Reader, others will still be able to comment.

You can use lots of formatting options within a post and in the comments! Some of these options include bold, italics, strikethrough and inline code. You can also mention other users by tagging them using the @ sign! Learn more about the formatting options and shortcuts here.

How to comment

To comment on a post, simply click in the area below the post that says, 'Add comment.' If you do not see this option, the creator of the padlet has disabled this feature. You will need to contact the Owner/admin of the padlet to turn this feature on.

Comments enabled

Comments disabled

If the commenter is logged in to their Padlet account, the commenter's name and profile icon will appear above every comment. Otherwise, they will be displayed as 'Anonymous.'

Please be sure to press Enter or click ➡ to save your comment. A timestamp should appear next to your name. No timestamp? Your comment has not been saved and will not be recoverable after exiting the padlet.

Image, audio and video comments

You don't have to stick to boring text comments. You can add images, gifs, videos, and more! Click the plus icon next to the 'Add comments' box and an attachment picker will appear!

Search the web or your device for the perfect photo or video, upload a selfie using the Camera option, record a video using the Video recorder, or create an AI-generated image with I can't draw! Commenting just became a lot more fun!

Make sure to press Enter or click ➡ to save your comment!
Try dragging and dropping your media comments onto the post for an even easier way to add your comment!
All comments (text, audio, video, etc.) are moderated by Safety Net.

Editing comments

Comments can be edited or deleted by the commenter AND by the creator or admins of the padlet. To edit a comment, click the vertical three-dot ellipsis button (...) on the right side of the comment. From the menu, you can choose Edit comment or Delete comment


Why are my comments anonymous?
Comments will be recorded as anonymous if you are not logged into your account before commenting. Make sure you are logged in before commenting if you want your name to be recorded as the contributor.
Why aren't my comments saving?
When leaving a comment, make sure you press Enter or click the Send icon (➡). If you click outside the comment box, your work will unfortunately not be saved. One way to be sure your comment is submitted is to check for a timestamp which will appear next to it.
Can I restrict commenting to only some people?
The short answer is no. However, there is a workaround! If you want to stop collecting comments, you can turn them OFF once your desired comments have been added. Existing comments will stay, but new comments will not be added.
When will I see new comments?
New comments should appear in real time. If you need to refresh to see new comments, please contact us.
What is the character limit for comments?
Comments have a character limit of 10,000.
Are comments included when you export a padlet?
Yes! All aspects of a padlet are included in exports. To learn more about how to export your padlet to a CSV, Excel file, PDF, etc., click here!
