Tallysheet Design Suggestions

Hi all,

I am a system administrator new to Ruby and Rails. I have developed a
simple
web-based tallysheet program with the following tools:
view:
phpFormGenerator
controller:
Bash, Gawk, and other Linux utilities
model:
Flat file

(Just playing with what i’ve learned about Rails)

:slight_smile:

Here’s a sample snapshot of the application:

Goal: Re-write it from scratch using Ruby on Rails

I really wanted to get the design right the first time, or at least
better,
specially the database.
I was thinking of separate tables for the dropdowns: shift schedule,
account
type, transcribed by, and edited by with view interfaces for each to be
able
to add new entries (suggestions?). I’ll be using acts_as_authenticated
or
auth_generator for handling the authentication. I’ll also need a view
for
the summary of their productivity (plugins? or any simple way to do it).

I want to keep it simple for now and just add new features or
improvements
in the future.

Any helpful links for tutorials or articles, suggestions on how to
implement
it, comments, anything! :slight_smile: will be much appreciated.

Thank you very much.
