Fundametal logic is to create Authors field inside the document and embed the mangers id/name into it so that rest of them effectively get locked for edits.

Code is something simpler

FIELD Authors := "Manager1":"Manager2":@UserName;
Authors

Authors field should be multi value to accomodate multiple entries

I changed my thinking.  Let's say that a manager to be notified has already been defined in a field called CHOICE. I want to make it so only that manager can edit the document.
