Be precise with the markup tools

Use the markup tools to draw on a video or image and point out specific things. Use arrows, rectangles, and the pen tool to make sure the content creator knows exactly what your comment references.

Like and reply to other comments

There may be multiple reviewers. If someone has already provided feedback that you agree with or want to discuss, use the Like and Reply functions. This keeps the review organized and easy to read for the content owner.
