About Record Locks

A record is locked when a user opens an item for updating or transitioning or begins editing a row in the Rich Editable Grid. Other users who attempt to access a locked record receive a message that the record is currently locked. A user who attempts to open a single item in multiple browser windows also receives a record-lock message. In this case, users can break their own locks, but they cannot break the locks of other users.
