If two users are editing the same entry at the same time they will encounter a save conflict. The first user to save will have their changes saved on the form as usual, when the second user goes to save they will encounter a Save Conflict popup.
There are three options when encountering a Save Conflict:
- Discard Changes: Discard your changes and reload the updated form
- Save and Overwrite: Save your changes, overwriting all recent modifications
- Cancel: Will take you back to the edit screen where you can continue making changes. .
Before deciding between Discard Changes or Save and Overwrite, users can select the Click Here hyperlink in the popup.
When selected, a new window will open that displays the modified version of the form so users are aware of what changes have occurred since they began editing.
Once a user has reviewed the modifications made since they have opened the form, they are able to decide which option is the most appropriate for their situation: Discard Changes or Save and Overwrite.
