Some Recent Questions
Q: You mention about syncing with MySQL. Is this a one-way or two-way sync? I mean, will the MySQL data be updated from any place apart from the program?
Also, would it always be one installation syncing with the database or multiple installations from different machines? In short, will this program be used by one person at a time or many at a time.
A: 2 Way sync is needed
The program will be run from multiple locations and may in the future be part of a website that will alow editing aswell
Q: How do you mean different fields? Do you want to specify that these will be the fields available to the users OR the user can always enter a new field while entering the contact data?
A: The data from users will always be the same format, so if a field is added for any reason on one, when it syncs with the db the database will add in the extra field(s) to the table inserting a null entry for any that do not have values
**Note: If is there is an easier way of going about this part that allows flexibilty, i am open to suggestions.
Q: Is the MySQL database you mentioned ready and structured or that is also to be designed?
A: There is a DB in place at the moment, but will probably be undergoing some changes.
