Thanks, Mark. I should have mentioned I was referring to Version II of the system. Jim Gilmer assures me that the LDE option will need to be used less and less in the future, when the system will have been updated to accommodate this kind of measurement.
Another feature of V. II is that F.S.'s won't have to enter all the same measurement data as regular measurers - thankfully.
I think Mark will agree with me when I say that the best way to approach the new system is with the understanding that it may long be a work in progress, as the developers encounter new measurement situations that justify additional programming. I for one do not think that it would be possible to roll out this sytem, even with the healthy volume of beta testing currently being done, with the expectation that it will immediately be a flawless, omnibus solution that we all want it to be. "One off" situations that arise that are deemed to occur infrequently will most likely have to use the LDE method unless Jim and Mark and others on the development team decide that such situations merit more programming.
Every page of the system includes a little triangular icon that when clicked opens up a "Report An Issue" form in which you can submit your problem or question to the development team. I suspect this may get used frequently at first, even though the team has worked very hard to anticipate most difficulties users may have until they are fluent with the system, and/or our system updates address various issues that will inevitably arise.
This is not some half-baked experiment that we have designed to force users to show us what we need to do to make this a worthwhile endeavor. Some sharp minds have put a massive amount of thought and work into this already. It is a wonderful, valuable, imperfect system that will march onward to perfection with everyone's cooperation and help.
