  1. Improve on/learn from ULS

    ULS only permits applications to be filed with Windows browsers - a quirky requirement rare in today's world.

      • User log-in system, "bookmark" specific searches of data

        Create a user log-in system, that would allow users to maintain and "bookmark" specific searches of data. Allows users to retrieve data quicker.
