Database Navigation and Data Security

Week 7 All Students Posts 47 Pages 

  • Finding information in a database can be difficult unless you know what information you need and how to look for it. Creating a navigation system or menu allows Access to act like a point-and-click system. What are some of the types of navigation that you can create in Access 2016? How should we approach the design of the menu?
  • Why is data security important now more than ever? What are some of the steps that we can take to ensure that our database is protected and secure? How can you use user views to enhance security and restrict access?

Pros

  • Tab based navigation allows you to present more content to the user in a limited space.
  • Probably useful for mobile devices where you do not have much screen real estate.
  • On desktop browsers, as soon as content for active tab is fetched from server, it can be displayed to the user. Rest of the tabs can be loaded on demand using ajax when the user navigates to them or can be pre-fetched in the meantime the user is going through the active tab. This provides a good user experience as data is quickly available to the user.

Cons

  • Content from multiple tabs cannot be viewed at once. Tab navigation should never be used when there is a use case where user may need to view/compare data from multiple tabs.

One limitation I see in using tabbed navigation on mobile devices is that the tab links can take up a large portion of the screen which could have been used otherwise…
