This is a question for item management. (By item, I mean any item such as a user, product, etc.)
Which approach is better?
- an item management menu containing options to create, delete, search/view, edit
- having separate modes to create items and search for items, where the user selects an item from the search results to view, edit or delete selected item
This is an example :
With only a "search" page, the rest "view", "edit", and "delete" functionality can also be applied.
But, will the user know this flow? Is it enough with only "create" and "search" menu?
Or the menu really should say "Create Item", "Search/View Item", "Search/Edit Item", "Search/Delete Item" ???
