Title

Multiple Users on single record

Post

Hello again, 

So I've slowly started to get the hang of FileMaker Pro but I've run into a potential issue. If I have multiple users accessing a same record, it is possible that they could overwrite or delete each other's values without noticing. Is there a method of locking a record while it's in use. Or perhaps notifying the user that more than one person is editing the record?

I hope what I'm asking is clear. As always thanks in advance for your continued help.

Clarification: When I use the term "record" I don't mean field. I mean the entire record. Just pointing it out because in the tutorial documentation "record" is used interchangeably to mean field and record.
