Where to enter user supplied data?

I want to store user supplied data for generating reports. For instance, batch number, batch start time, batch end time, comments during the batch process with time stamps, lab result values for the batch etc.
Would creating data points for these in a "virtual data source" be the best way to accomplish this?

Probably yes. There is some discussion in another recent thread (https://forum.infiniteautomation.com/topic/3180/temporal-observational-data-on-collected-data) about other options (and a script to automatically create observation points of a sort), but if you use alphanumeric virtual points (that other thread uses alphanumeric script points) you will have the same sets of tools (reports, script contexts) as the other data points you're working with.
