Frequently asked questions

What is Comments Manager and what do I need it for?

The add-in is designed to ease your work with comments in Excel 2016-2007. It displays all comments in a tree-view and allows you to navigate between them. Comments Manager lets you quickly add, edit, delete, copy, and export the comments. What's more, you'll be able to turn the cell contents into a comment and vice versa. Also, there's an option to insert the author's name, date and time, and even pictures to comments.

Why would I want to use the add-in when there are standard means to work with comments in Excel?

The standard Excel options are a bit more cumbersome than necessary. For example, to edit a comment, you need to right-click the cell, select the "Show/Hide Comments" from the context menu, and when the note appears, click it and edit its text. Also, the comment's author name is always inserted automatically. If you don't need it, you'll have to delete it manually every time.

With our add-in, you decide whether to show or not to show the author name in your comments. Additionally, you have a wider range of options to work with notes: copy and delete in a click, convert to a cell's value, add picture, date, and time.
