Record locking

SynWeb record locking

SynWeb uses a web browser to display and update records, allowing you to update:

  • student results
  • student attendance
  • staff and room substitutions
  • student documents in the DocMan bar of Student Maintenance.

The web browser has limited capabilities and cannot:

  • lock records
  • distinguish which fields have been updated.

The following message is displayed if you attempt to update a class record using SynWeb while another user is updating the same class record using Synergetic.

SynWeb prevents you from editing the class results while another Synergetic user is accessing the same results. The record is locked until the Synergetic user has finished editing the results and exited the class. If this occurs, close the record entirely and try again later.
