One of the initial CASCADE developments was aimed at examining how we might improve the process of adding and reviewing comments. To this end, cascade provides a number of facilities for inserting, reviewing, and reporting on comments. To increase the speed with which comments can be made and reviewed, maximal use has been made of single mouse clicks to make things happen. While we have attempted to bulletproof the code for windows users used to having to double click, the Windows user should beware that there may still be places where double clicking will have a severe negative impact.
Whenever a user makes a comment or inserts a link, all other group members will be informed, via the activity log, of the action.
