Recycle Data Fields
A data field can / should be used in several forms. (Example: Data field "Date of birth" appears in the forms "Manage employees", "My account employees" and "Recruitment page 1")
Duplicates of data fields should be avoided
You should never use two different data fields for the same information. (Example: Data field "Mobile number" in the application form, "Mobile no." in the form "Manage employees")
Use selection fields with value lists.
It is often a good idea to predefine a response selection for a data field instead of allowing a free text response. (Example: "Car available" "Yes/No" vs. "VW Polo from my mother").
