Forms are designed such that all the fields designated to a specific role are contained in a single form and fields designated to other roles are not contained in the given form . This requires the user in the role to be an expert on the on all the data entry fields contained on the form. It also requires that the form designer know of the specific roles as the forms are created. An optimal model is to provide forms based on the data content that needs to be collected regardless of the role. Thus, when the user in a role is performing the data entry, the user is able to see the data in context with that of the other roles and the form creator is not restricted by the roles.
