Submittable's Private Note feature enables readers to make comments on a submission that are only view-able to themselves (and also to any level 4 or 5 team members). Private notes are useful in situations where you don't want readers to influence each other. And also in situations where reviewers simply want to make a note that only they (and no other reviewers) will see.
To add a Private Note:
- Select the submission you want to comment on from the Submissions page to open the Submission Details page.
- In the Add note... box in the upper right-hand corner of the page, type your message.
- Select the Private option in the Visibility drop down menu.
- Click the Add Note button to save the note.
The note you made will only be view-able by you and anyone with level 4 or 5 permissions. Submitters will never see Private notes. In order for a submitter to "see" a note, you would need to choose the Submitter option in the drop down.
