How to prevent another user clicking on the same button from another device

Hi everyone, I need to disable a button on my app in order to let one only user to enter a section at a time. Basically, the first user enters the section clicking on a button from a gallery, then I want the second one (from another device, who tries to enter that section) to receive an error message with no possibilities of entering the same screen until the first user finishes the operations and gets away from the page with the restricted access.

 

How can I do?

 

I tried to add a column in my SharePoint "database" made of 1/0 to decide when it is possible to enter or not, but this method is slow, not really effective and doesn't function properly...

Re: How to prevent another user clicking on the same button from another device

Hi @marcro97 ,

 

I think this cannot be achieved so far. The apps made in PowerApps are multiuser. They each are their own instances so it does not matter how many users use it at the same time. And you cannot prevent this currently.
