Does anyone know how I can warn a user that the form is currently locked for editing by another user?
I have several person entering data int he same form, and if they press submit at exactly the same time, there are some conflict.
I'd like to avoid that.
Thanks in advanc for your help,
Hi @blue_lotus ,
If multiple users edit the same record at the same time, only single one user could edit the record, the other users would face conflict error within their app.
More details about the errors type within the app when submitting the form, please check the following article:
Currently, you could re-edit the same record only when the other user saved his/her modification into the SP list.
Do you mean a warning to show a user when a form is already being used, similar to what you would get in, for instance, a Word or Excel document, if another user is editing the document?
If so, I have been looking for something similar for a week or more now, and have been unable to come up with anything, so would be most interested in a solution!
actually, I'm not talking about editing a record, I'm taloking about submitting a record.
I did the test and if 2 users on 2 different tablets enter 2 different records at the same time, only one is actually recorded.
the other one vanishes.
also, my source is in an Excel tabel on One drive. If the source happens to be opened, and a user submit a recrd at the same time, once again the record vanishes.
is there a way to prevent that? like a message that would pop up ont he screen sayin that the table is being edited by someone else. and the record could be saved in the cache?
i don't know how to detect that a source / table is being used by another user....
thanks for your help
