Download path comments

Downloading path comments includes comments from the path forum, and comments published in the forum of a course when the user who wrote the comment played the course in the context of the path sessions. This also includes comments from programs that were migrated into paths.

  1. At the top of the homepage, click Paths.
  2. On the right of a path, click 3Dots.svgDownload comments.

Note that we do not include course comments that were published in the context of a path before March 15th, 2023 (which is the date of the release when we introduced the concept of "path session context"; all comments published before that date are not linked to any specific path session). Comments published before March 15th, in the context of a program session, and that were migrated to a path session, are included.
