Look who’s editing now

As a result of freedom fridays at the umbraco HQ I’ve made a new little umbraco package.

Make sure your content editors don’t end up editing the same document and overwriting each others changes with this addon for umbraco.

In environments with multiple editors the editors will see in the umbraco content tree which documents are currently being edited.

Tree

Also on the content page there will be a notification when another editors are viewing/editing the same document.

For a quick demo check out this video

 

You can download the package on the project page at http://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/look-who’s-editing-now

    Hi Tim,

    got the following error on install on Umbraco 4.9 (SQL Server 2008R2):
    “System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Incorrect syntax near ‘END’.”

    Thanks
    Matthias

    Hi Tim

    Are there any plans to make this available in version 7?

    That would become very handy indeed!
