Having to switch between the public and private comments when reviewing ideas is cumbersome. It would be nice if those two tabs were combined with a filter available should I want to focus on one or the other.
Thank you for the idea. We currently keep these two clearly separated with tabs to prevent someone from accidentally posting a private comment in the public portal. One way to streamline the process of reviewing ideas would be to add columns for public and private comments to the Ideas -> List view. This would bring all comments together into a single view for each idea.
Based on the option above and current priorities, we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time.
