Data base user locking

Does anyone know how easy it is to lock records to a certain user??


i want it to be able to do the following


when a record is unassigned to a user then any user can edit it and it automatically becomes their record


once its been assigned to someone then only an admin can assign it to another person

Re: Data base user locking

Shared record security wasn't an option with ACT! can make a record Private, but then even the admin can't access it.

It could be faked via sync or with ACT! for web (no-longer available for 6.0), but difficult to automate


If this is important for you, you might look at moving to ACT! 2009 Premium, which has  "Limited Access" and could be automated with some code using the SDK.
