As an ideal e-commerce platform, Shopify provides each user with a Timeline to do the internal affairs. For example, you are able to take a view of histories in Order’s Timeline and leave comments. In this post, I’ll take you through how to add comments to Timeline. Thanks to this, you can still know about the order’s information or its problems without remembering all of them. Moreover, your staffs can aware of the comments you’ve left so that you don’t have to tell them directly.

Below is the transparent guide for you to take steps.
