Multiple users accessing the same record


This article explains the behavior of TrackRecord when multiple users access the same record.


What happens when multiple people attempt to access the same record? How does TrackRecord handle this? If it locks the record, does it notify those attempting to access the record who has physical control of it?


There is no issue here because the TrackRecord data is not stored in tables. TrackRecord is an object orientated database. Users can access the same record and even change different fields in the record and all changes will take effect without an error or problem.

Users would get an error message if two users try to access the same field in the same record at the same time but as you can imagine, the chances of this are extremely small. In this case, the user who does not save the information first will get an error message that "data previously written is now being overwritten".
