Can end users of a dashboard post comments on a dashboard

Can end users of a dashboard post comments on a dashboard that others can see? For example, while switching through months of a dashboard, executives could post explanations/comments to highlight business activities. The end users would not be dashboard developers, they would only be end users viewing the dashboard from Infoview.

My assumption is that there would have to be a method to read/write to a database from Xcelsius, does this capability exist?

    Has anyone developed dashboard that posted comments from dashboard to a database? Oracle, Teradata, DB2, or SQL Server?

    The solution I am looking for can't be localized, and I doubt XML file to server will be approved solution in our organization.

    I had the same question as the OP and that link above looks like a good option. However, one thing we've been asked is to have security in place so not all users can write/read comments. Is this something we can achieve? I imagine I could extract the user ID to do a verification but not 100% sure how that would work. Any ideas on this would be great!
