    Comments on non-Office files
    Roadmap ID: 16617

    Comments  are an effective and easy way of collaborating on a file by bringing your peers into the discussion, assigning tasks or giving feedback. We have seen great usage of this functionality in the Office files stored in OneDrive and SharePoint. This month we extend the same functionality to all files allowing you to work together not just in Office documents but with photos, CAD drawings, PDF’s and more. Users will now have the ability to add comments to files as part of their review process, leaving notes and getting notifications to ensure you are always in the loop.

    “Popular Around Me” in the "Shared With Me " view on web will now surface files which are recommended based on your working relationships to help you find relevant and trending information faster and discover content you might not have been aware of. “Popular Around Me” view doesn't change file permissions and users will only see what they already have access to.
