    Overlay and Merge Fails for Records Locked in MD Editor

    • Product: Alma

    • Product Version: February 2017
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct



    Why are records currently open in the MD editor not overlaid when a new version is imported?


    A record that is open and locked for editing in the MD editor cannot be overlaid or merged with another record because this is considered to be editing the record. Just as manual changes are not permitted when another user is working on a record, automatic changes cannot be made for the same reason.
