Building an Employee Phonebook system

Building a Mini Application
Can it really be that simple to create a little application with Report and Form Builder?  This tutorial shows you that it is - and actually helps you make a useful application at the same time as learning how to use these features!

Report Builder and Form Builder are designed to work together.  This entry shows how to build an Employee Phonebook system.  It can be setup on your system and is actually a useful little application.

The following features are discussed/setup in this tutorial.
  • Each employee controls his/her own data.
  • Employees can enter last name, first name, phone number and upload a picture of themselves (stored in a database).
  • The picture can be updated, or removed from the record at any time by the user.
  • A searchable phonebook is created to easily find employees.
The tutorial starts at the very beginning using the webNetwork Demo Database that you already have on your system.  It discusses every step necessary to create this application from start to finish.
