It’s always fascinating to find the developers took a good care of users in this respect. Just picture the situation when from time to time your data get into a mess the moment somebody decides to edit it right away it occurs to you.
How is this issue handled in WorkXpress? Let’s check it through a standard test when one and the same record is opened in 2 browsers.
So, let’s open the record in IE and change Last and Hiredate Columns:
And open the record in Firefrox and change Last and First Columns:
And save the record in IE first:
Do the same in Firefox:
What we’ve got here? First thing: the system doesn’t really care about simultaneous editing. It means there is no warning you corrupt somebody’s data.
But the good news is the system tracks only fields the user modifies and doesn't overwrite them.. One can see on the screenshots hire date is not overwritten.
And one more thing: you can add audit for field modification.
It’s time to edit Last field in 2 different browsers and check out how the system acts.
This is the report about modifications in the Last column:
WorkXpress doesn’t support simultaneous record editing so the user could know he overwrites somebody’s data. But field track history really helps here. At least you can always find the person who corrupted yours. Better than nothing.
