What the user sees

The user will see the objective and the private note on the page and can fill out the private note. In this example the student has already written their essay. Notice the objective has not been checked off. It will not be checked off until an admin approves the comment.

Approving Notes

To see and approve student notes navigate to ProgressAlly -> Private Notes. By default you will see all notes that are waiting for a response. You can choose to approve without a reply or you can choose to send a reply with approval or without. In this example the reply button was clicked on and the comment was not approved.

When the note is not approved the user will see the comment and will be able to reply again. Here is an example of what the user would see and an additional response from the user. You will notice the objective is still not checked off.
