Re: Django admin suitable for external users?

I'd say for non-technical users, you may want something custom; particularly if they are only working with a smaller sub-set of the data.

We have users that are fairy technical (working in the science domain) that are used to large grid-like data displays (typically in spreadsheets).  So, for them, the admin interface makes sense; and be aware that there is a *ton* of customisation you can add to the interface (e.g. actions; third-party "skins") to make it more "user friendly".  

You can, of course, start with the admin and then expand it / add-on custom functionality as needed over time - its not an "either/or" situation.

(PS You can send a private email if you need details on how our project works.)

Not very technical, necessarily. They're normal end-users.
