Jim…quite a few months ago I asked if you could implement some items in to streamline the setup process, however I believe the response I got back was something in the order of because of the way it was setup, it just couldn’t be accomplished. And I understand that.
Having taken up Webmastering lately myself, I know how difficult it is sometimes to make something work easier when it comes to webbuilding. Sometimes what you want to do is just plain impossible because of the way your specific site is setup, and without restructuring the entire site, it just can't be done and sometimes isn't worth the effort for the little gain you get.
Here's what I was looking for (as far as setting up the report structure):
I have about 21 sections or more to my report.
In quite a few sections, I check for the same things.
(In WI we have to report the condition of items regardless if something is wrong with it or not) and I make my report by rooms. Easier for the client to know exactly where a problem is located.
So let's say I have to check doors and locks.
I want to put in a (concern) that states "Doors and locks functioned normally."
I want to install that (concern) in 8 different sections of my report. (Bedroom 1,2,3, bathrrom, upstairs bathroom, kitchen, etc)
Right now I have do the setup 8 times, search for the section number and
line numbers and then install it.
It takes quite a few clicks and waiting for pages to load, etc to get it just listed in one section.
Now I have to do that 7 more times (once for each section). Very time consuming.
If there were a way to have a concern inserted in however many sections you want it to appear all at one time and just have to checkmark the sections you wanted them in and just click once to insert it, it would save lots of time.
Like I said, I understand it may be impossible. It's just my opinion on how it would make it easier on us.
