Show other users on same config
« on: November 17, 2020, 12:30:53 pm »
Hi Volker,

We're currently working in teams of two on our projects and it happens from time to time that one of us edits a config another developer (consultant) is currently working on. Let's say I (1) just want to change the caption of a button and the other developer (2) is working on a complex topic which needs time and keeps the conifg open for a longer period. When 2 is trying to save he can't and needs to "merge" his changes into mine or vice versa. As we do not have the advanced tools software developers are using today (SVN/CVS/GIT, FileCompare/BeyondCompare, etc.) this is a manual task and can be very time absobing.

As long we don't have integrated tools for comparing and merging the different versions of configs, is there any way of giving the config editor a similar functionality as "show users on the same record"? This way 1 would never have been able to edit the config unless 2 first saves his changes and hands over control to 1.

Thanks,
Patrique

Hi Patrique,


good idea. We will add that feature.
