If enabled by your school, you can add a comment to any student from a pre-populated list of comments. These comments are predefined by the school and provide you a way to add extra insights about how well students are doing. If you're looking to write specific comments about a student's progress for a given marking period, see the topic Add a Narrative to a Student.

- Right-click the cell of the Comment column corresponding to a student.
- From the list of options in the shortcut menu, click Enter Comment.
- From the list of comments in the Comments dialog box, click a comment, and then click Select.
- Repeat steps 1–3 to change an existing comment.

You can apply filters to the comments in the Comments dialog box by clicking the Filter icon .
