In this article, you will discover how to edit an annotation from the project' edition page and the available options.

project
annotation
bcf

First, access the "Annotations" tab situated in your project's edition page. Then find you annotation by using the filter and sorting options or by just scrolling until you find it.

Editing an annotation from here is a completely different experience that from the viewer, some options will directly be saved, some won't, to know if all of you changes have been saved, look for a small “not saved” pin at the top of your annotation, if this shows up, this means you have some unsaved changes.

Let's look at it column by column and explain everything

 

1st column :

Here you can see your annotation's image, click the “Change image” text or icon to change the image for a custom one.

Below you will find 3 buttons

  • Save annotation : use this to save changes you've made to your annotation (useful only if the “not saved” pin is present)
  • Go to annotation : use this to open the viewer in the last version this annotation is available in and directly onto this annotation's position.
  • Delete annotation : use this to delete the annotation completely (warning, this a one way road, once an annotation is deleted, there is no way to get it back) 

 

2nd column :

The first 2 information are not editable directly, the creator can never be changed, the last editor will automatically be changed to the last person that pressed “save annotation”. for each line you will find 2 information, the user and the date. For the creator it is going to be the creation date, for the editor, the last edition date.

The creator can be represented under 3 forms :

  • Firsname name : the user has an account on the platform.
  • Email : the user has been invited on the platform but has not yet finished his account creation.
  • Email with a star : the user doesn't have an account on the platform and has not been invited.

 

If you put your mouse over the user's information, a text will tell you the exact state of the user regarding the platform.

You can then select or change the responsible of this annotation.

If you press the description addition/edition, the description window will pop up and allow you to change it.

You can then change the title, type, add labels, edit the priority, the due date and the state.
When adding labels, you will have to press ENTER to validate your text, holding CTRL while doing so will keep the text in the field.

You can open the comment window by clicking the “See comments” button, in this window you will be able to see previous comments, add new ones and edit your old comments, note that as we speak this is not a live discussion, if multiple users write comments ate the same, the page will have to be reloaded for the new comments to show up, the live version will come in a further update. Also note that comments can't be deleted once they are sent.

 

3rd column :

Here you can change the versions that the annotation is going to be present in, select a version to add it to the list, click the cross to remove it. You can use the 2 buttons at the top-right to add all versions to the list or remove them all, if the annotation is not present in any version you will still be able to find it in the base version, which contains all of them.

It is important to understand the difference between present in the version and visible in the version. A present annotation means that you find in your scene menu while in this version, but while it is present it can be visible or invisible in the viewer (checked or unchecked in the scene menu)

You can also manage your files here, add new ones (up to 5 and not heavier than 25MB each), delete the ones that you don't need anymore, all of these files can also be found in the “files” tab under “other-files”.

 

You must click  “Save annotation” to save your changes.

 

If you have any problem or difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact the platform's team.
