How do I annotate files on Workplace?

You can only annotate files when logged into Workplace from your desktop computer.
To annotate a file on Workplace:
  1. After you've uploaded your file to Workplace, click on the file thumbnail to see a preview.
  2. To add an annotation, click Place a new comment.
  3. Click any part of the file preview to place the annotation and add your comment, then hit enter to post or click Cancel Annotation to remove the annotation.
Keep in mind that all annotations are included as part of the file's comments. If you do not want to see the annotations on the preview screen you can toggle annotations off. This will only turn off the annotations for you. Annotations are viewable on Workplace apps, but can't be added from them.
