What are text attachments?

This is a the simplest way to add:

  • Additional commentary
  • Additional description of the work done in a box
  • Add keywords or any "metadata" to the activity, though custom fields and questionnaires might be more appropriate.

Text attachments or note boxes on the canvas ? 

In a workshop, I usually collect all general knowledge and comments in notes boxes so that they are visible on the canvas at all time. When a commentary is added as an attachments, the attachment panel must be opened first. 
Later, after the workshop exercise, I will typically move some information to attachments and remove all the commentaries that are not relevant anymore.
