Completing an application and managing design changes

As you prepare to deploy an application, consider these finishing touches:

  • Creating an icon for the application.
  • Creating database Help using the standard "About this Database" and "Using this Database" pages, or with a designated home page that describes the application or site.
  • Providing context-sensitive Help for an application
  • Customizing SmartIcons sets for a Notes® application to give users one-click buttons for frequent tasks

Then, before handing over the application to the database manager:

  • Test the design
  • Make a master design copy to manage future design changes
