Also Viewing

Warn your users before edit conflicts happen.

Here's the problem:

  1. Sally goes to edit a page.
  2. Sam starts to edit the same page.
  3. Sally submits her changes, but Sam is still working.
  4. Confusion and frustration ensue. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Also Viewing helps developers solve this problem for their users.

Here's the solution:

Sally is editing a page, and Sam starts to edit the same page.
Also Viewing warns them that they might run into edit conflicts.

Sally sees this:
Sam is also viewing this page.
Sam sees this:
Sally is also viewing this page.

Also Viewing gives you a drop-in solution that warns your users when others access the page.
