Avoiding accidental changes

[ Edited ]


Is there any way to avoid a user from accidently changing data.  Act does not prompt before saving which may cause someone to make changes without noticing.

Unfortunately, there isn't an option that will prompt users before making changes within the database. 


Please submit a feature request to be considered in a future version -

No, ACT! does not have a prompt to approve changes when a field is edited..  If you are using ACT! Premium, you can make some fields read-only for selected users if you do not want them to change the data in that field.  This is done from Tools/Define Fields and choosing the Field Security option.  Another possibility is to use Field Triggers to initiate a process or executable when a field is could set this up for select, critical fields. This option is also under Tools/Define fields and is the last screen you see when you are creating a new field or editing an existing one.
