Data quality controls are built into WRDB. Projects can be password protected such that non-Supervisors are restricted from performing selected functions (e.g., deleting records and performing QA/QC validations). The workflow might include data entry/import by junior engineers or technicians. Each record entered is individually tagged by username. After the dataset is ready, the Supervisor will perform a variety of actions to assure quality. These edits are all captured (either mandatory or voluntary) in a journal table. The Supervisor finally validates the records and transfers them to the Master table (see below).

In enterprise environments, strict limits on permissions can be imposed by IT staff on even Supervisor access to the database schema.
