An administrator needs to configure the following to enable the use of annotations on the FotoWare system:
Enabling annotations in an archive
- From the Tools menu (cogwheel icon), go to Site Configuration > Archives. Open the General tab.
- For all users with access to the archive to be able to see the annotations that have been created on assets, turn on the Enable annotations toggle.
Giving users or groups access to create annotations in the archive Access list
- From the Tools menu (cogwheel icon), go to Site Configuration > Archives. Open the Access list tab.
- To give users or groups access to create annotations, select the Annotate permission.
Giving superusers access to manage and moderate annotations
On the General tab for the specific group, select Manage annotations to allow members of the group to moderate and edit other users' annotations.
Having configured annotations for use on the system, you can learn how to create and work with annotations.
