Tab controls versus multiple layouts UX/design question
Let me start with the basics: using FM Pro 10 (not Advanced) on Mac, solution will be access via IWA and FMP, I'd rate my skill level as intermediate.
I'm developing a job tracking solution for the company I work for. I'm trying to decide what will work best between the tab control object or using multiple layouts.
Here's the scenario - our jobs consist of different types of work (print, web, photography, and a few others). Each work type requires different info and no job uses more then one work type. When someone views a record or creates a new record of a certain work type I'd like to display only info for that type. I hope that makes sense.
I've figured out how to use a script trigger to run a script that automatically displays a certain tab on a tab control but I wonder if this is the best way to do this. What are the potential pit falls of doing it this way?
Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
