Locking Individual Records by User

Hi all,


I have a fairly straightforward problem, but as yet, I haven't been able to find an elegant solution.


I would like the ability to run a script through a button to lock an individual record from being edited, except by the user who originated the record.

We are running FileMaker 14 and have five individual users. I would like the other users to be able to view and print the record if necessary, but not modify its contents.


Ideally, the use case would go as such: the user would create the record, enter the contents, and then press a button to "lock" the record. Upon locking, I would like to have some way to show that the record is locked, and which user locked the record.


Any ideas?
