In-Use Objects (2602)
Big Business allows multiple users to view the same object simultaneously, but only
one user at a time can actually modify the object. For example, many users can view a customer card for A Shop For Gifts And Things at the same time, but only one user can actually edit the card. Once that user closes A Shop For Gifts And Thingss customer card, another user can begin making modifications immediately. Objects displayed in this read- only mode can be viewed and printed by any number of users at a time. User access to objects is managed on a first-come-first-served basis.
Big Business does not display a dialog box when an object will be displayed in read-only mode. Instead the In Use indicator is displayed.
The following is a list of the objects that Big Business displays in read-only mode:
Customer, Vendor, Item, Contact, Employee, Company Cards
Quotes, Orders, Invoices
Make a Payment tool
Bank, Category, Account Cards
