how to lock and give a warning to user when they edit the form when already opened by another user?

Hi All,
I'm working on a Reponsive form

Currently when a user is editing a list Item, it will not allow another user to edit the same item. SharePoint throw an error. Is there away to notify the other user saying the item cannot be edited?

Something like a warning as soon as they edit the page and not when you save?

Thank you in Advance

Using a workflow you can update the permissions such that nobody else can edit the item until the assigned user has submitted their changes. Then the workflow would restore the original permissions.

In document libraries you have the check-in / check-out mechanism to do what you want. In regular lists there is no such option. So as described above a "checkout" workflow could be an option. The workflow marks the item as in editing mode and you prevent updates from other users either by form rules or by permissions.

 

Best regards

Enrico

Thanks Praios81
But can you refer a link to a sample online or a resource?
