Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.

Enable comments to allow others to add comments to your ePortfolio pages. Comments will only be visible to the ePortfolio owner. To allow others to view comments, you will need to make comments public.
