I would like to see the ability for reviewers to be able to edit their comment after they submit it and while the review is still open.

SO happy to have this feature implemented just in time for my team to conduct maintenance on the modules we just finished.

I agree with Kimberly.  It doesn't take much for comments to roll off the visible comment panel, so to be able to delete a comment would be quite a space saver.  Perhaps you could make that an owner-only action.

Agree with Michelle considering I just made this request myself. It is frustrating as a reviewer to not be able to edit/delete a comment while reviewing the course. I understand that once the course is submitted, it shouldn't be edited, but when I have to reply to my own comments saying the one above is an error, that gets a bit confusing in the edit log.

What if you allow the uploader/admin to select the ability for the reviewer to edit/delete so that others can do this on a case-by-case basis?

Hi James, makes sense. I typically don't start making edits until a reviewer has marked their review as complete making them unable to access it again. At the very least a timer would be helpful... 5-10 minutes would ideal.

Thanks Michelle. We don't currently support this because many of our clients need an audit trail. And we want to avoid situations where a Reviewer makes a request, the Developer starts work, but the Reviewer edits the request in the meantime. 

Replies/Discussions are a good way for a Reviewer to amend a comment. 

We are considering adding a timer so that the users has X minutes to edit their comment before it is saved. Maybe five minutes...
