    It would be handy if we could add comments in the SOQL window.

      Hi Shaun,

      Thank you for your suggestion.

      We will consider adding this option in the IDE.

      Thank you,

        I second this idea.  Very helpful to document queries

          Hi guys,

          I completely understand your request and we've had at least a couple battles in the team when implementing the SOQL editor if we can or cannot implement comments.

          And according to the official SOQL reference - there's no place for comments in it. We don't want to brake compatibility with all the existing approaches and applications and to invent our own SOQL standard. This is why unfortunately we won't add comments to SOQL queries themselves.

          However we'll try to think over once more if we can add some additional input(s) for comment/description about the SOQL query itself to store it separately from the query, but show inside of the SOQL builder.

          Hope this helps.

          Thank you,
