We have a web app that is a centralized toolbox of various marketing tools. On it our users can either order printed documents, send one of our predefined email newsletters and download various documents. These documents are organized hierarchically, in a way similar to that of the files and folders of a filesystem.
We are currently unsure as to how users should access the documents. We imagine two solutions :
When the users log in, they find a page where they find 3 links (print, email, downloadable docs), each going to the appropriate product hierarchy.
Group all the types of documents together in the same hierarchy, while making sure that hierarchy is easy to navigate.
Which solution would be easiest for the users? Or is there a better solution?
