We are currently considering a preferred approach to setting up XSD Displays.
One approach, the one currently supported by Fez, is to have
different displays for different user groups. This leads to multiple
displays for particular document types to suit different user groups,
e.g. RQF2006 book, Book. This approach has the advantage of
presenting users only with the fields relevant to them.; but the
disadvantage of becoming unwieldy and perhaps harder to maintain over time.
Another approach is to have just a single display for each document
type. The big disadvantage here is that users will have to pick and
choose which fields to enter; which could also get a bit troublesome
over time as the use of the repository expands and the number of
fields required increase.
I'd be interested to hear if anybody else has considered implementing
an alternative to the Fez default, and if so, what approach they
chose to take and why.
