[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Approximate, Inferred, Questionable - how are you using it?

I’ve also wondered about how my repository might best use the Date Certainty options. At present, we’re simply leaving this field blank.

DACS 2.4.12 suggests using approximately or circa to indicate estimated dates, but inferred and questionable are not discussed. Lydia, have you received any replies of list? If so, would you mind sharing?

All best,

Hello everyone,
How people are interpreting and using the drop down menu within Dates for Approximate, Inferred, and Questionable?  It seems that those labels don’t print in the PDF view, and there isn’t an equivalent drop down menu in Rapid Data Entry, so I was just wondering on its functionality and the distinction between the terms.  I am still on version 1.4.2, if that makes any difference.  Thanks for your thoughts!
