Is it possible for Instructors to import feedback comments to the Grades Tool

Hi There,

I'm wondering if there is any way for instructors to import feedback comments via the Import function within the Grades Tool?

Currently the csv file only contains columns for whatever Grade items have been selected for export. Is it possible to add a feedback column for import when populated? A similar query was submitted to the community 3 years ago -

When manually entering grade via the Enter Grades in the Grades tool there is a field for comments but I'm not seeing a way that these comments can be imported.

Any advice appreciated!

    Thanks Sreelakshmi.

    This PIE Item looks like it has been under consideration for a number of years. When is it likely that D2L will review and possibly implement?
