Controlled vocabulary reports and analysis
Audit and control of terms
TemaTres has a number of tools to monitor and manage the evolution of a controlled vocabulary. By providing information about the creation and distribution of terms, the tools provide excellent support for distributed management of controlled vocabularies. They provide the following functionality:
* Report to stakeholders on the creation or modification of a term * Provide an audit trail by user and date on the creation or modification of a term * Provide an audit trail on the date on which a term changed state * Report on candidate and rejected terms * Report on free terms * Report on duplicate terms
The following sections describe different ways of accessing the above information:
TemaTres provides alerting through RSS. This allows each user to receive an alert each time a term is created or modified. Access to the service is by adding /xml.php?rss=true to the base directory of each vocabulary (eg http://localhost/tematres/vocab/xml.php?rss=true ).
