Most of the context for your photos and report findings will be addressed by the Property, Activity, Area and Detail tags, as well as any associated Action items. To provide additional specific and detailed information, be sure to add comments to Quick Pictures and Inspect activities whenever appropriate.
Comments can range from a description of damage done to an object (“Cracked banister”), to the location of an item in a room (“Dehumidifier in closet”), or any other detail that you may want to add. Providing specific contextual, practical and timely information in the comments will allow anyone viewing the photo later to have access to this information.
