Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing for the end user, part of Access 2010: Forms and Reports.
Throughout this title I'll often refer to the database as end-user and I wanted…to take a moment to define who I think this person is and why they're important…to keep at the front of your mind while designing your forms and reports.…The end-user isn't anyone specific.…They're more of a theoretical individual that is completely new to your organization.…They maybe a new hire or an intern or maybe, even your grandmother, somebody…that knows very little about your day-to-day tasks and even less about how to…use Microsoft Access.…As you develop your database application, occasionally put yourself in their…position and look at your workflows as if you're brand-new to it.…
If you can set up your navigation and data entry and reporting systems tailored…to the end-user that uninitiated first day on the job employee then you'll be…well on your way towards creating a successful application.…
