We are looking to gather feedback on creative images. Usually we print and write feedback directly on the paper, but we are looking for a way to digitize this process. Is there a way to add comments directly to images on airtable and can we gather feedback and approvals from multiple people?
A feedback conversation in Airtable would happen at the level of a record. The comments wouldn’t be directly on the “Image” (I’m not entirely sure I understand what you mean by that), but they would be directly on an “Image Record”.
Here’s an example of what that could look like:
This is a record (row) in a table. It has various fields (columns), one of which is an attachment field with an audio file attached. There’s a contributor field that indicates who contributed this entry, and a few other fields for notes, Topic tags, etc. On the left side, next to the title of the record, there is a little blue bubble with the number 20 in it, indicating that there is a comment thread on this record with 20 entries in it.
Expanding the record reveals the comment thread on the right side of the expanded record:
So you can just imagine your image in the “Attachments” field in place of the audio file that is there in my screenshot. In an expanded record like this, you’d be able to see a medium-largish sized thumbnail of the image there. And you’d be able to carry on a conversation with any collaborators in the database in the comments thread.
And then you can easily implement mechanisms for approvals as well, either by checkbox fields, ratings fields, or a “Collaborators” type field called “Approvals” where people add their name if they “approve” of a piece.
