What are Annotations?
An annotation in OpenField is a way to make note of an event (e.g. a goal) and to group events (e.g. every goal in a game) that occurs during an Activity.
Groups of Annotations can be analysed via the cloud by sorting by the annotation name or category. Annotations can also be analysed individually via the console or the cloud.
