Consistency of terms in the client

10
 We would like to see the same terms used on the patron registration-information data sheet. The left area uses the terms   mailing address and   physical address   (in purple). When editing patron records where there is a PO box and a street address, the terms   mailing   and   billing   are used. This is confusing because they mean the same thing and when you mark the PO box as both the mailing and billing address, the physical address on the left doesn' show up - the mailing address appears instead.

We have had other submissions related to consistency of terms and have had some discussions with Kathy on this but time needs to be spent going through the entire client in all ares so there is consistency of terms.  Also, a style guide for developers would be desirable (although someone can correct me if this exists).

The specific example identified in this idea has been addressed in the new web-based patron editor. I believe there have been other cases where the developers have tried to provide more consistency in the new client. However, I'm sure areas have been missed.

I'm going to rename this idea to cover consistency in all areas of the client. Based on Tim's most recent comment, it sounds like the idea wasn't to fix this one problem, but to improve it in the overall client.
