Instructor Q&A

Comments when highlighting in Document viewer


Would it be possible for teachers to highlight in the document viewer and then be able to leave a comment on the side connected to that highlight?


Thank you

    Hi Dustin,

    The Schoology Document Viewer provides annotation tools to accomplish this. Highlight Text and Add Note will allow you to highlight specific text and then you can add a comment using Add Note for that highlighted text.

    For full specs on Document Viewer annotation tools, please see this Help Article:

    This post will be moved to the Q&A forum, to help Teachers who are looking for help with the same question.

    Thank you for your understanding!

    Charles, Schoology Team

    There isn't a way to highlight and leave a comment with the same function? I don't like having to click multiple buttons just to do something that's standard in Microsoft, Google Docs, and Canvas.
