My daily work life involves a lot of changes. We need to make changes to our product, and in the world of engineering, these changes are very specific. As I mentioned above, I use video often
to give context, but there’s also a need to get into the nitty gritty, to point out exactly what needs changing. That’s where I use annotations.
I annotate images or screenshots
of whatever product changes are needed and then pass them along to my team. I screenshot, add the annotation, arrows, etc., and then paste the screenshot in slack. I can also add it onto a ticket, or send it via email to any external parties.
