Adding comments to Google Docs in Google Drive is a very important aspect of document collaboration.
Google Drive users can add comments to any type of Google Doc to discuss collaborative projects and communicate with other users without having to markup the actual document itself.
By default, when a user adds a comment to a Google Doc, all other collaborators of that document are notified and have the opportunity to reply and / or mark the comment as being resolved.
Users can highlight a particular part of a document and then right click to add a comment specifically regarding the section of the document in question.
Once a comment is marked as being resolved, it will no longer be visible directly inside of the document but users can click on the comments link at the top right corner of the screen to view all comments, both active and resolved, on a particular document.
Google Drive comments will also correctly export to Microsoft Word (.docx) format and vise versa.
