I want to be able to edit my comments

Everyone can make a mistake... as well as users who post updates. If I misspelled something, or want to change something in my comment I should be able to do so.

Checking in on the status of this enhancement. We also wondered if there could be a possibility of having access to edit comments that may have been placed for our own internal reference but nobody was tagged. These are notes we add for our own use as we work on a task or the overall project. It would be nice if we could potentially choose whether it is a true "Update" or just a comment about the status.

Thank you for your idea to edit comments on the Update Stream. At Workfront, we understand this limitation as we use the system ourselves for our projects too.


In the past, we have considered an "undo" function that could be performed in seconds after the initial comment to help with majority of the typos. This approach would take care of most typos and eliminate concerns for an audit trail of deleted comments.


We will revisit this "undo" feature and possibility of editing comments with our engineering and design teams to determine effort. After review we will determine if we can prioritize this change and will solicit additional customer feedback at that time.


Thank you for taking the time to present this idea. Customer feedback is a gift and we always appreciate it at Workfront, An Adobe Company.

I'm glad that you are following up on the idea and holding us accountable. After review, it has been determined the team is currently unable to build this feature due to the complexity and resources available. Right now, we're fully occupied with the recent Adobe acquisition and other initiatives, so our development resources are limited for the rest of 2021/early 2022. Since this is officially on our radar, we are always happy to revisit this in the future; but at this point, we don't know when that will be. When we do revisit this, it will be more as described below as an "undo" option that is available for a few seconds after a comment is added since there are organizations that use this area for tracking/compliance.

I could swear 'Edit Update' was in the Classic experience and it's not in the New. Would realllly like this functionality again!

It would also be useful to edit the 'notify' list of people - if you add someone by mistake or they no longer need to be part of the conversation it would be good to be able to delete them (like you would on an email) thank you
