How to work with course history and comments

Available with the Pro plan and above, as well as during the 7-day free trial

When managing a course, you need to track your course program changes and interact with other instructors. To build your workflows effectively, you can view your course history, leave comments, and attach documents to discuss them.

Let's talk about how to send and view comments and see your course history.

How to work with comments

Comments are a tool that helps you communicate with your team members more effectively, share information and reviews, store data, and solve issues.

Leave a comment

To leave a comment, go to the History tab in the required course, and type in a message in the Notes field. You can enter up to 5,000 characters and attach files.

Using the Enter key, you can move a text to another line and add a paragraph. Once you type in your comment, click Send.

For example, instructors can add information about new course materials, mark additional student progress points, notify them about new topic launches, or celebrate their success.

Attach files

To add files to a comment, click the folder icon. Select a file from your storage, or upload a new file from your device.

All SendPulse services share the same file storage. You can add a file of any extension except executable.

The maximum file size the free EDU service pricing plan allows is 1 GB. Your file storage capacity is not defined by services but is set based on the storage capacity of the largest pricing plan among all services. To increase your storage capacity, upgrade your pricing plan. Read more: How to work with the file manager.

Once you upload your files, they will be available to all team members who have access to the course.

View comments

You can also view the entire history of communication between colleagues and quickly find the necessary documents with course data.

Under the Notes field, you will see your course history. To view only comments, click Comments only.

If a comment is too big, click Show more to expand it.

In course history, you can't delete events, but you can delete irrelevant comments to focus on the most important information. To do this, click the three dots icon next to a comment, and select Delete.

How to work with course history

Course history allows you to view all the events that have occurred to track course program changes and monitor the progress of your work with students.

The history shows your course event date, instructor name, event name, and corresponding course data.

Course history stores events that occurred after 2023-05-15 — the date when this feature was released.

To view your course history, click All history below if you have hidden it.

Let’s go over the events that can be shown in your course history.
