Functionality underway in version 1.3

3.2 Print

  • Improve the Print function to strip ancillary content and keep the View layout.
  • Download as PDF (this can be done with sites such as LinkedIn – how achievable?)

3.3 Improvements to Access Control


  • Editing access rights for multiple views (also when they are not under one heading) more easily. Development underway in Version 1.3
  • Use the Friends List function to create Access Lists, Friends List 2? Access Lists in effect, name Friends List?
  • Tutors/Teachers (business rule – staff from institution and/or groups I belong to). Selector like Moodle?
  • Groups (business rule – only groups that I belong to) Selector like Moodle?
  • What about a Moodle-like boxes:
    • View – Add Group Access
    • View – Add Tutor Access

3.4 Extended Inline Editing to include Profile and Resume fields or… Form Builder?

  • Resume could simply be a View Template
  • Inline editing to include Profile fields and Resume fields profile fields

e.g. Profile Icons, Goals, Skills, Professional Memberships,  – all just another block type
    e.g. Education History block or add title to text block afterall

Impact is that Resume then just becomes another scaffold/template
Create new , Update for all Views

The problem I see with the form builder approach is that it introduces a different mechanism from the core View building approach. We should aim for consistency in content management.

3.4.1 Default folders to support Inline editing

Default folders cannot be deleted.

Content within default folders can be deleted.

e.g.

Profile, Resume Folder

3.5 View Templates

  • Extension of View Types with ability to add View Type e.g. Resume is a Template – has the scaffolding but not the content.
  • Well designed themes/ borders to select from.
  • Template scaffolding should support different files as empty shells
  • Save as Template – Admin function only. Would mean that scaffolding is saved with headings and content type but no content.


Options: Could be located as a selector in the My View List or in the Create View dashboard:

3.5.1 Option 1 templates accessed via My Views

3.5.2 Option 2 Templates as part of the Edit View interface
