Adding a lock

A lock, or time lock, prevents users from editing or adding new data during a defined date range. A lock can be set on an entire database, a specific form or a specific project depending on your needs.

Locks can be used for completed programs/projects or simply to keep a clean version of your data after it has been validated by the information management team.
