our users are asking for the possibility to have discussions on folders.
Currently you can only write comments on files. We have the need for writing comments to folders and so have an active discussion on a folder level.
We haven't had any plans for this since the request hasn't come up to often - I'm curious to hear whether others in the community have interest in this.
+1 We would be interested in this feature. I just trained the whole company on how to use Comments for a file, and people frequently asked if the same could be done for a folder.
Largely, the ask is related to discussing what types of files go in that folder, or to redirect people to another folder if something is commonly misfiled. Adding information like "cross-references" or where to find related files would also be something that could be discussed in the Comments if it were available at the file level. Right now there is no way to direct people somewhere else except to add a file, name it "Cross-reference" or do some other old-school filing way of pointing people to another location for related files.
Same here, we would take advantage of it. Our use case would be "hey, I just dumped a bunch of stuff you should look at in this folder".
+1 on the folder, or the ability to bulk comment on multiple items inside a folder.
