Simple Locking Option
Posted on 2011-05-12
Have a form that I need to lock from editing. What I need is for the general users that they do the data entry and then the can edit the form when it is in either a "Candidate" or "Data Gathering" status. Once it is past that status in any of the subsequent statuses, it would be uneditable to the user. At the same time I need those with an ADMIN role to be able to edit at any time.
I know I can do a Computed Text field for each for every editable field, applying a hide for each editable field and the opposing hide for the Computed Text field that will prevent them from editing. But I was hoping that maybe I could do an Author field of some type that would allow entry and editing only in the first couple states, but then lock it from the users. While still allowing a read only access.
