Adding builder comment to elements

We can add comments to all the elements we create. These comments are ignored by the Flow engine, and is super-useful to other builders who may be sharing our tenant. Our future selves may also thank us for the annotations a few months down the line!

Here is how we can add comments:

  1. The first thing we will do is open the element we want to annotate by double-clicking it. This opens the element configuration panel on the right. Let’s say we want to add a comment to the Build my Agenda operator element here. We will double-click it.
  2. Let’s expand the Advanced section.
  3. We can write our comments in the.. blinding flash of the obvious.. Comments section.
  4. We will save the element when done.

The next time we open the element, we can see the comments.
