Administrator Recipe: Manage Journal

As the workgroup shifts from one project to another, the journal becomes an important tool for past as well as ongoing communication. Several journals could evolve out of one project from individuals or subgroups, or a workgroup might want to check how a similar situation was regarded in journals for previous projects. Regardless of the reason, it’s undeniably handy to have a central point from which journals can be viewed, new entries can be published, archived journals can be read, and current entries can be removed. The Manage Journal page is designed to fill all those requirements.

The data source engine behind the Manage Journal page is very straightforward: only a simple recordset connection to a single data table, Journals, is needed. Most of the page’s features come from connecting to a related page and passing a record identifying parameter. Only aspects of the delete function require hand-coding of any sort. Rather than deleting one journal at a time, this page demonstrates how to mark any number of records for deletion and then remove them all with a single operation.
