An Annotation Example: Show, Don’t Tell

One of the most effective ways to help a customer solve a problem online is through visuals. CloudApp provides professionals with a tool to record their screen, create webcam videos, and snip screenshots. Instead of typing a lengthy email that attempts to explain a solution, show them. Annotation turns a simple image into an instant solution. Customer support agents can send a series of screenshots to a customer and physically outline how to solve the issue. Annotations can also be used create a case study for UX and product design portfolio, or to guide colleagues through the design and development process. An arrow points to a specific button. A line of text explains a particular step. When it comes to resolving problems, annotation isn’t a luxury - it’s a necessity.
