Comment Feed adapted to BCF Standards

As a means to increase interoperability with other platforms that use the BCF format, the comment feed of an Issue reflects the standards established by this format. This structure gives you the ability to comment each viewpoint separately and the same structure will be reflected in the BCF file exported/Imported from Newforma Konekt. This helps keeping conversation structured and concise, especially when exchanging information using BCF files with other platforms. This structure is used when editing an issue on the web platform and in the add-ins as well as in the reports.
