Access Planning layout by multiple users

Hi Experts,

I am using IP in my current Proj, i am facing a scenario where in users need to access the same layout for a given set of objects. . where in the users know what they have to forecast.

Ex scenario:

Material region KF

x TN 100

y CA 200

z NY 300

say we have three users each know which material they have to forecast, and all the three want to access the same layout in edit mode.

Appriciate your valuble suggestions to achieve this.

Thanks,

HVR

    Hello HVR,

    as long as each user works on a separate material all you need is a variable for material in the query filter.

    If they all need to see all materials but only edit one of them, it's best to split the query into two parts: one for the material they need to edit, and one for the rest (in display only).

    HI Harshavardhan,

    The Locks in Planning works in such a way that if we a given selection is queried into the data base, then all the records for the selection is locked.

    Since you have a single layout (Query) Accessing the data for all materials, then all the materials will be locked (provided material is maintained for locking) for the given user. Hence other users cannot logon tot he same layout in Edit mode.

    The Possible option is enable a material variable so that he can see / Plan only the materials he wants to Plan.

    If the user wanted to see other material, then it is better to give them a desperate Query(not Input Ready) to display the data.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards.

    Shafi.
