comment A required field that isn't really required?
One question: what is the use of the e-mail field? If I put my e-mail in, say, my bank web system, I won't put a fake one. If it is just because it requires an e-mail before I download something I want, I am less likely to put the real one. Anyway, a confirmation e-mail can only be "tricked" with disposable e-mail accounts, so you should consider it.

comment Best option for showing an unbalanced tree
As for the rest of your answer, a question:would the "expanded" list/table of towns be complete (for the province), or only the biggest/most used? I have to check how many space I would need, but I would prefer showing all of them instead that just a few (and if the user has to select another town, force him to look for it somewhere else, v.g. the search box). Under that I would put either two comboboxes (one for province and the other for countries) or just a searchbox. Am I understanding correctly your proposal?

comment Best option for showing an unbalanced tree
Thanks for your help, +1. Sorry for not mentioning it before, but the webapp is an intranet application (so, the workers from my organization are the ones inputting the data for the final users), so GeoIP is not a viable option.

comment Why do Facebook and Instagram force you to play videos?
The real issue I have is not with video, but the sound that comes with it. I usually have like 20 tab browsers open, and having to check which one has decided to mix with the music I was listening may be distracting.

comment Intuitive way to present chained 1-N relationships
A twist of your idea would be setting the Workers/Resource for the workOrder as now (screenshot2) but ignore that list when reporting activities (allowing to chose any Worker available, not just the assigned to the WorkOrder). The advantage would be more flexibility for the user, and that now the data between both popups is not related (in a DB meaning). The disavantage will be that, for every Activity added, the user will be offered a longer pick list. I will ask the project functionals, thanks.

comment Intuitive way to present chained 1-N relationships
Do you mean getting away with the pick list in screenshot 2 and just allowing any worker to be used for new activities? The trouble is that when a workOrder is created, the resource (worker) is assigned, then a printed notice passed to him/them, and after the workOrder has been fulfilled then the activities are recorded. So, I need to add resources to WorkOrders without activities.

@LorenRogers no, each ticket has N workOrders, each workOrders N resources/workers, each worker N activities. I agree that maybe the question is too long, I'll think about reworking it.

comment Designing price list for suppliers
For what I see I would go for some FOSS solution already packaged; I do not know of something like that but I bet there are some alterntives. In the end it is you who must select the application who better fits your needs and experience.

comment Very simple Welcome page/menu vs functionality
Principally the issue is context info ("hey, you are in the maintenance app, not in accounting"). Some help is always useful, though in this case the app is so simple that it will be minimal (but there will be some, we have some computer-handicapped users). Also, my thought was that (in case of no welcome), sending the user to one page (search / create) and having them look for the button that redirects to the page they really want in a page with lots of other controls might not be optimal.
