    Hi Arpita

    You do not have to do anything for that!

    It is built into SAP Workflow Inbox (SBWP)

    If a work item goes to multiple agents and one of them picks up, the system first reserves it in that user's name and then opens the work item. As soon as it is reserved the WI is not visible to others in their inbox.

    Even if two users manage to open it exactly at the same microsecond (which I have not seen so far), system will only reserve it for one and will issue an error for other.
