Topic: Marine Recorder - Version 5 - contracted out work
Over the next few weeks I may get chance to upgrade our installation to version 5.
I have a series of contractotrs who will continue to do work for us and already have a SiteID and Check code and existing NNBData file containing data (though the top copy will always rest with us); should I be issuing them with a new SiteID & Check code? Here is my dilema:
- I don't yet know how onerous the upgrade process is and clearly I will be upgrading the top copy datasets anyway (which we could have amended internally to correct errors, so the contractors holdings may differ to ours), so why would I ask a contractor to duplicate the upgrade process?
- Might I be better to issue fresh SiteIDs to contractors and ask them make new data entry into an empty NBNData file with the new SiteID?
What have other organisations that contract data entry done in terms of this issue.
