Hi Dana,

That is great! Do you have any tools or components that are not yet funded?
On the PGA project we were asked to identify areas of future funding

Hi All,

We have put together a wiki page which describes the family of tools that
we are developing across both the Cloud for All (GPII) and the Preferences
for Global Access projects.  On the wiki page you will find a hierarchy of
tool features, a description of the tools and their functions, and a map of
entry points into the tools.

Note that we have changed the way we refer to some of the tools such that
the Preference Management Tool (PMT) is now referred to as the Full Editor
and the Personal Control Panel (PCP) is now referred to as the Quick Editor
.  The Preference Editor refers to both tools in general. We believe that
these names more clearly reflect the functions of the tools.

A mock-up of a user interface is also shown on the wiki page - the
intention of this mock-up is only to demonstrate the tool features in the
hierarchy and does not fully describe the designs for either the Full
Editor or the Quick Editor. These designs are in progress, and can be found
at the following wiki pages: Discovery Tool and Preference Editor. Note
that the Preference Editor mock-ups show the Full Editor, with the
exception of the final wireframe, which demonstrates the Quick Editor.

Our intention in developing this family of tools is to provide a range of
flexible user interfaces with varying complexities and varying levels of
interaction that will meet the needs of users in a wide range of states and

Your feedback is welcome!

Dana, Joanna and Jess
