    Design Approach for 'Rare Activities'? (AXP 10.2627.2625)

    How should i provide controls for activities that occur once a year? Such as in a school database: 'Promote all students', which moves each child to the next grade level.

    A separate Front End linked to the tables?
    A form hidden away somewhere under a 'Once a year' button?
    Other?

    I usually handle "rare" actions either from a menu, where it can be found if needed but doesn't take up any screen real estate, or from a maintenance item on a switchboard. That would call up another switchboard with buttons for those infrequent but necessarily activities.
