You can make DDF available to others both on your local machine and further afield.
You can keep track of what people think of DDF, if you want to. This is done by means of the survey dataset. If the DDFLIB dataset is:
QUAL1.QUAL2.DDFLIBthen you can create a new dataset
QUAL1.QUAL2.SURVEYwhich DDF will look for. It should be an FB(80) PDS or PDS/E. If it's a PDS it should have plenty of directory space because DDF will generate one member for each DDF user. All DDF users must have update access to the survey dataset and you should copy the member ZTEMPLAT from DDFLIB to it.
Every so often, DDF will display the ZTEMPLAT member to each user, asking them to fill in what they think of the product. DDF will then save it using the Userid as member name. DDF will also update the Userid's member on the survey each time they use the product; it will add one to the Mod field in the ISPF stats. Thus when you take a member list of the survey dataset, if you
SORT CHANGEDyou will see the last people to enter their views about DDF, which you can then look at, and if you
SORT MODyou can see who uses it most and how much.
