Slow down while editing the same records by multiple users in LongJump

This record editing can be a tricky thing! And it really is. Just checked how multiple users editing works in LongJump. It didn’t take a lot of time. I went through few things.

Opened one and the same record for editing in IE and Firefox. In FF I changed First Name and Birthday:

So, let’s save these changes in IE first:

And now in Firefox:


So, all changes were saved without any warnings or questions. Not that good news for the common user, who probably will blankly stare at the screen wondering what the heck is going on? Yes, LongJump doesn’t have any built-in functionality for simultaneous editing. Be advised.
