Just to provide a bit of ‘perspective’….
RE: My Background
I’ve been working with computers since the late 60s. I bought my first of many personal computers in ’80. I used it to plan rail movements of mechanized combat forces across the country, calculating railcar types and quantities. The system was used to mobilize National Guard and Army Reserve formations across the country during Gulf War I.
I managed a Fortune 500 Company computer lab in the 90s. We laid-out and published a book almost more widely and frequently distributed as the Giddeon’s Bible. And in the management of that lab, I built database systems that inter-operated with applications to generate those books. Streamlining and standardizing data input while reducing human errof by 97% in the first year after implementation.
This household eats-sleeps-and-breaths Macs. There are four in the server closet and a lot more scattered throughout the house for various activities. I ran my own BBS in the 80s and 90s. Designed and operated my own web-pages in the early part of this millennium.
That’s just part of my overall computer experience.
I offered a suggestion to improve your operations. You’re welcome to use it or continue to denigrate the idea of a pre-established, standardized form which REQUIRES users to fill in the proper blanks, or do whatever they want, to your chagrin.
RE: One Click from the Home Page
What is the verbiage of the ‘One Click’. It wasn’t intuitively obvious to me when I was there.
By the way, I understand your sensitivity over suggestions from the outside. I experienced it when dealing with the IT types while working for that Fortune 500 Company. Any suggestion I made to improve their activities and support of the ‘end user’, i.e. myself and my staff, was pretty much rejected. But several months later many were implemented.
It’s your ‘baby’. And suggestions that it’s not perfect are taken as an offense.
But do try to keep an open mind. It’s not YOU this is about. It’s the company……
