Trigger when data changed by another user.

Hello,

I'm looking to detect when another user may have updated a record.

 

User A has a window open with a customer record being viewed (record is not locked).

User B edits the record, and filemaker server pushes that update to User A, and his/her screen now reflects the changes.

 

I would like to name the window with the customer name, and therefore, if the customer name is changed, I would like the window name to update.

 

I realize that I may not fully understand how the FM server "pushes" updates, etc., and that there may be a better design approach to this (i.e. record locking), but I thought I would ask if there is a way to detect if the record being "viewed" by someone else has been changed by another user.

 

OnTimer Scripts could be an option, but I have always hesitated to use them.
