Comments & File Uploads

Available for:
Free
Premium
Business

Take back time spent hunting for the information you need to get stuff done. With task and project comments you can add notes, upload any file, and even discuss details with your coworkers. Everything stays neatly organized right inside your tasks and projects so you can get right to work.

Task and project comments are a Premium feature for solo projects, but are available for shared projects in Free accounts too. 

Uploading files is always a Premium feature. Free users will be able to access files uploaded by collaborators in shared projects, but won’t be able to upload their own files.

How to add comments and files to projects

Project comments are attached to the whole project rather than a single task. You can keep any high-level project information or files organized here. Especially handy for keeping everyone on the same page in shared projects.
