Title

Graphic feedback when user has unsaved changes

Post

     I wnat to remind the users that they need to click outside a field to save their changes. Its 5-10 people working, and often going inside each others records. Since two people can't change the same record, even if its not the same field, we have difficulties when the users forget to save/click outside the field/commit their changes.

     So, I had an idea of changing colors as long as the record is unsaved. I found this Get(RecordOpenState) that tells me if the record has unsaved changes. Using that for condifitional formatting didn't work so good, the window needs to be updated in order to change the color. Could be done with script triggers for every field in the layout, but I don't like the solution.

     Has anyone else better ideas?
