The extension prevents concurrent editing of products, categories, CMS pages, orders, and other resources by multiple admin users. If administration of your shop's backend entails work of several managers/agents, sooner or later one overwriting important changes made by another will become a real problem. The default Magento not only doesn't try to prevent this, it doesn't even hint at it. Parallel edits of all but one user will be lost forever! Use this extension to make the collective work of your backend team efficient and drama-free.
The job of the module consists in determining the backend resource being edited in real-time and disabling the 'Save' button for given resources viewed by other admin users. These users can also see a message (notice) about who locked the resource.
To view the extension's various setup options, go to the configuration page:
• Stores > Configuration > SAFEMAGE: Parallel Edit Locker
1) Resources available for monitoring are represented by the following options:
• Sales (orders, invoices, shipments, credit memos)
• Catalog (products, categories)
• Marketing (catalog and cart price rules, emails)
• Content (pages, blocks, widgets)
• All others (pages with ID in URL)*
* The option gives the ability to prevent simultaneous editing of all other resources, even including entities of 3rd-party modules.
2) Unlock Resource when Switching to Another Page. Normally we do not recommend to enable the setting because admin user may experience unexpected behavior when working in the backend in multiple browser tabs. You may enable it only when the following setting is off.
3) Ping Magento from within Open Pages. The setting is used to actualize the time of the latest visit of editable resource and to provide best possible experience for an admin user while working in multiple browser tabs.
4) Unlock Resource by Timeout. This makes resources, not visited (or pinged) within the specified time, get unlocked automatically.
5) Enable Manual Unlock by Link. This provides the quickest way for a given admin user to unlock any resource occupied by another admin, at his own responsibility
