To start a conversation on a document, open the document from the Documents tab in My Kona or the Space. In the details pane that opens, click into the comments field and start typing away. Hit the Enter key or Send button when you are done typing and the discussion will be started!
If the document is marked that everyone in the space is on it, everyone will be able to join in on the conversation. If the document is marked only for a selected group of people to see, only those people will be able to join in.
