Individual Lock for updates


Locks an individual record so it can be modified and updated. When a record is locked, only you can make modifications and everyone else is blocked from getting a lock until you update or unlock the record. Therefore, it is important to Update or Unlock the record as soon as possible so others will not be prevented from seeing the latest changes and making update. NOTE: If you forget to unlock a record, the lock will timeout after 20 minutes.
