What is Annotation?

Last Updated: Jul 31, 2013 01:07PM CDT

Annotation is a means to provide and gather collaborative feedback on a piece of content. Click on a file within a board to open it and view full screen. Once open, the file will automatically be in Annotation mode. Just point and click on any area of the file and the Annotation dialogue will appear in the exact location you wish to address. Simply fill in the dialogue and click Save (or Cancel).

Once completed, all Annotations made within the file can be viewed via the Comments pane to the right of the screen. Simply open the Comments pane by clicking on the small green arrow in the vertical black bar on the right-hand side of the screen. Note the hover over “show comments” text.

Hovering over the annotation “push-pins” on the file will highlight the respective contributor’s name and feedback within the comments pane on the right. They may be replied to, or removed.

You may also annotate a file by clicking on the image and dragging your cursor to draw a red box around the element you wish to comment on. Once framed, the annotation dialogue will appear for you to insert your comment. Once completed, you will see the "push-pin" and red box on the file. 

If a file has multiple pages, the page numbers will be noted at the top left of the file in full-screen view. If annotations have been made, they are denoted by a small green bar at the bottom of the respective page number.

If you wish to view the file only without the “push-pins”, simply turn off the annotation feature via the annotation button at the top.
