Training Question of the Week for January 7, 2008
Is there a way to lock a work object to prevent a user from changing the object while someone else is working on it?
Answer by James Adair
For example: a user opens up a Leave Request work object and is viewing the Perform harness that allows him to Approve or Reject the request. At this point, the work object is locked.
If another user logs in, accesses the same work object, and tries to display a Perform harness, they will get a lock message, and will be unable to continue.
Work object locking is examined in the Bootcamp course. You can get more information about locking in the KB article Understanding V4.2 advanced lock management.
