Content Collaboration made easy for WordPress

Collaborative publishing in WordPress is not as easy as it is in Google Doc, Office 365, and other content editors.

The ability to leave «comments & suggestions» for content review is not available in the WordPress Gutenberg editor at this point.

Not having the ability to collaborate using the block editor may even be a deal-breaker for some teams that are considering WordPress.

Content publishers often used Google Docs just for the ability to give inline comments with notifications.

Google-Doc Style Editorial Commenting could be useful for organizations where multiple teams need to review content before publishing.

This plugin cuts many time-consuming steps out of that process, such as obtaining collaborators’ Gmail addresses, pasting the most recent version of the post into a document, and ultimately having to paste it all back into the editor.

I added more than 10 comments and then I can't view any of it. There are many issues that need fixing. While writing the comment, the comment box keeps "flickering".

This is exactly what I was looking for. This plugin works flawlessly. Great job.
