Bigger Text Box For Scorecard Comments

I have a request for a customer to increase the overall size of the comments box. Users are typing in several sentences into this box and the window is very small. Users have to scroll through the box to get the full message which can be a bit frustrating.

I agree several on my CSM team have the same limitation, they are not able to see all of their comments and/or the size of the comments in which they are pasting is larger than the alloted character limit

And, each text box seems to get smaller as you progress down the page.

+1 to this idea - I've had customers ask for this as well.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Adjust Scorecard Comments.

We would like to see the ability to adjust the scorecard comments section on the C360.  Right now if you have more than a few lines you need to scroll thru the box.  It would be nice if this would adjust dynamically or if you had the ability to change the font size so everything shows without having to scroll.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled [Request] Ability to adjust the height of the comment section in Scorecard.

When entering comments in the Scorecard, the box on the right hand side of the scorecard is used by our CSMs to capture contextual data supporting the manual score. The box's height, however, is not tall and it is very tedious to see what has been written or to make changes where there is a significant amount of text. Is it possible to make the box taller?

We have the same request. Our CSMs add comments to their subjective scorecards whenever a score has declined. Although they date their comments, both the CSMs and others viewing the comments find it very difficult to review the history without scrolling.

Hi All, 

Thanks for sharing this. Agree that when there is a lot of content in the comments section, it's difficult to consume the date. Would having the option to view the comments in a pop-up/overlay make sense (i.e something like when the user click on the comments section, the selected measure comments open in a pop-up/overlay more...with more space to read or edit the comments?)

Got it, agree that it should not be invasive like a pop-up. Don't you think that with dynamic sizing, as the size of the comments increases the number of measures that are visible in the screen would keep going down? 
Would something like, when you click on the measure it expand in the same place to show more comments be better? Something like this:

I can see the logic behind your option. The problem I'm trying to solve is for upper management quick access to the info without scrolling or clicking. An alternative solution would be to be able to size each field based on text lines plus available space in the screen, that way you have all in one screen but if the text box needs more space, include a visual queue on the side (scrolling bar) that is visible only on those boxes with hidden text but no need to hover over or click. Makes sense?

Hi Marcelo,

If I understand correctly, based on the screen size the comments can take up more space (i.e, if you are seeing it in a large screen, provide more space for the comments)
Agree on the second point, even today we can scroll within the comments section..but the visual cue is missing. Also do you think scrolling within the limited height is a good experience?

Aditya,

Correct on your first statement, so it should be dynamic hight based on screen sizing.
Scrolling with limited hight for me is not a good option right now as most people miss it (specially if they are not actively using Gainsight - upper management). If we get dynamic hight and still have text hidden withn the box, the scroll bar should be visible regardless on if you hover the text or not.

I checked with some of our CSMS and here's their response: In general I like the idea, but would have a few clarifying questions.  1.  Would it function as a "hover" option such that when you hover of the comments that a pop up screen displays?   2.  Could comments be added to the pop up window that displays or is it read-only (hopefully not just read only)?  3.  Would the pop up window be a set specific size or could the CSM drag on a corner to make it bigger? What about CSMs that update comments on a scorecard dashboard - same need to have more room for comments.... Thanks!

Hi Jeanne,

1)It would not be a hover option...basically, when the user clicks on the comments section today we show them only in the limited space that is available. The idea is to have more space for it (so that the user can easily consume the comments / edit the comments).
2)The user can read or/and update the comments (do you think there is a need to have it read-only?)
3)Good point, we are thinking that it would be dynamic (the size would be based on the existing comments) & that would have a max height - after which it would start scrolling
Would that help your CSM's

Regards
