Hi, I am new to Rails (and Ruby) and for what i have seen sofar i like
it a lot! But i can’t figure out what the best sollution would be for
Lets say i want to setup a CRM system and i have to sorts of contacts:
Customers and Prospects. A part of the info is the same (addresses,
company info etc) for both customers an prospects and a part is
What i would normally do is defining tree tabels: organisations for the
generic info, customerdetails for the customer specific info and
prospectdetails for the prospect details.
Would you also do this in a Rails application?
and if so, how would the models look like? would the customer and
prospect model both use the same table ‘organisations’?
is it hard to retrieve separate lists of customers and prospects?
or is the above way not the ‘rails way’?
i hope this makes any sense
