Add an Annotation to a Package
Applies To: SQL Server 2016
This procedure describes how to add an annotation to a package.
In SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), open the Integration Services project that contains the package to which you want to add an annotation.
In Solution Explorer, double-click the package to open it.
In SSIS Designer, right-click anywhere on the design surface of the Control Flow, Data Flow, or Event Handler tab, and then click Add Annotation. A text block appears on the design surface of the tab.
If you add no text, the text block is removed when you click outside the block.
To change the size or format of the text in the annotation, right-click the annotation and then click Set Text Annotation Font.
To add an additional line of text, press ENTER.
The annotation box automatically increases in size as you add additional lines of text.
To add an annotation to a group, right-click the annotation and then click Group.
To save the updated package, on the File menu, click Save All.
