    Notification of changes to the page/contect you are working on

    Hi All,

    At the company I work for, there are several teams who update various parts of our website, some parts are shared between several teams. We have run into the problem of diferent people working on the same page, at the same time, and not knowing about the other person. Then the second person to save wipes the changes that the first person to save has made. We currently use Umbraco v7.

    What I'd like to know is, are there any features of v8 or higher that would mittigate this issue? Like locking a page that is being worked on, or notification of a page you are working on being updated since you loaded it before saving. I've tried to find something in the documentation but I'm not sure what search terms to use, and the features lists are all too high level to show something like this.

    I'd like to put forward a business case to the company to upgrade and this would be a good feature to include because it directly prevents lost work time. Any info, even a point in the right direction, would be helpful.

    Cheers, Edward

    Hi Edward

    In V7, you should be able to 'roll back' to different people's last saved versions, if there is something important to salvage, but yes almost impossible to resolve two sets of changes to the same content and very frustrating.

    In V8, it's made slightly worse, as it complete overwrites the history of the content item, back to the last publish...

    There is a plugin developed by The Cogworks for V8, called Content Guard

    that addresses this issue.

    For V7, there was a package called 'Look Who's Editing Too': which I've never used personally, but might be worth investigating.
