Apologies if this should be a 'Content Strategy' question... anyway, I am involved in a project that is multi-platform and will have both mobile phone and tablet components (not identical). I will need to label my discrete content packages to specify which widget they are displayed in. I've done a little bit of homework but can't find anything explaining how this is done. My first thought is to number each individual widget in the whole system, then each content package can be allocated to the relevant widget. For example, W.001, W.002, W.003 etc. Am I on the right track? Am I missing something blindingly obvious? This is for a health intervention by the way. A mixture of medical record data, graphical data treatment and normal text.
so my query is: If I were building a IA for a website I would number my pages 1.00, 1.01, 1.02 with 1.00 being a parent page and 1.01, 1.02 as child pages and in excel have notes on the content for each of these pages. My excel structure would mirror the IA structure. Our application will have widgets for different medical conditions showing lab results. I will have a Blood Pressure widget, a Cholesterol widget, etc. These widgets will display on different screens at different times. As we collect content I need to keep track of which bits of content appear in which widget. In order to specify which widget do I just use a similar approach to web page numbering? So I'm assuming that there aren't really parent/child relationships (as the widget content is independent, it's just a design and context decision on which widget appears where and when) so my widgets would need to have individual numbers, as I mentioned before W.001, w.002 etc. I don't need help in how to arrange and allocate the actual content, I get that, it's just what labels do I use to 'signpost' where that content belongs
