In September 2018, we released dashboard commenting in Power BI. Users could directly add comments to dashboards and specific visuals to discuss their data. With @mentions, users could pull others into the conversation with automatic emails and push notifications.

Continuing our work in this area, we will release commenting for reports. In addition to the features of dashboard commenting, with reports we will capture the current filter and slicer values, so users can return to the same report view when they later interact with a comment.

We are also updating commenting for both dashboards and reports based on user feedback. We will automatically @mention the owner of the report or dashboard when a user leaves a comment and send a periodic email digest to owners so they can stay up to date with comments on content they own. Additionally, we will update the comments button to show when a user has unread comments.
