What are pattern entries

So I was doing my ATC tracking thread and I was told that I wasn’t doing pattern entry’s can somebody explain what they are thanks!

Before understanding entries, make sure you glean on what a pattern is first. Essentially, the former requires you to enter someone into a pattern at a specific point within the “oval” in the video. Downwind, base, final, and so forth are all valid areas to do so depending on the situation at hand.
