This topic describes how to manage To Do comments in the To Do panel:

Creating To Do Comments

You can create and delete To Do comments in the Code Editor. In the To Do panel, you can only modify the comments.

To create the To Do comment, add it to the needed place of the script code using the To Do Comment Format. To Do comment that you insert into the script code is added to the To Do panel when you typing it. The script unit to which you add the comment is automatically displayed in the Module column of the To Do panel. Values of others properties are displayed in the corresponding columns of the To Do panel if you specify them in the script code.
