I have a singleÃÂ InfoPath form with a lot of information that multiple users will need to access to read and some of them will also need to update. I'm struggling to find a user-friendly way to avoid concurrent editing of the form. I find that the "require check-out" option is very badly integrated with Form Services.
Indeed, if the user forgets to check out, he can open the form and make all his changes and it's only when he clicks on "save" that the form tells him that he needs to check-out before editing (in my case, the user shouldn't save as another file). On the other hand, if a user checks out the form and save his changes, no prompt suggests him to check in his form so there is a big risk that the user may prevent for a long time the others to update the form.
It's strange that InfoPath 2007 doesn't have the ease of use that Word 2007 has with checking out, namely the prompt to check out a document once clicked and the prompt to check in the document once closed.
Any idea for this problem?
