How to Deactivate a cursor?

I have a layout, that is opened daily by many of our employees. On it, there are fields to enter time worked against charge-numbers (in hours).


What is happening is, if one employee opens the layout, clicks into a field, then enters hours, but never closes the layout, and never clicks out of the field, the cursor is left sitting there. Sometimes they will even just move the layout to the back, and bring up another application in front, working away for hours. Meanwhile, someone else needs to open the layout, and enter some time for themselves on the same account/date field. But they are locked out and get the FM message that someone else is editing the record.

Is there a way to move the cursor out, to where there is no blinking cursor anywhere on the layout? Possibly using the timer function? Say after 2 minutes or so?


Is this possible? Id love for it to go to the same state the layout is in when you open it for the first time- no field selected, just first record (this layout is based on a list view by the way.
