Configuring Annotations for use

An administrator needs to configure the following to enable the use of annotations on the FotoWare system:

Enabling annotations in an archive

SaaS - Enabling annotations on an archive.png


This is set up on the Metadata tab of the Archive properties in the Operations Center. When enabled, all users with access to the archive will be able to see the annotations that have been created on assets.

Giving users or groups access to create annotations in the archive Access list

SaaS - Add annotations to access list.png

This is done by adding the Annotate permission in the archive access list in the Operations Center.


Giving superusers access to manage and moderate annotations

SaaS - Group permissions to manage annotations.png

This can be set using the Group permissions in the Operations Center and allows members of the group in question to moderate and edit other users' annotations.
