Getting Other Users Changes
It is important to get other users' changes regularly to minimise the possibility of conflicting changes being made to the same data. When getting other users' changes, conflicts may arise that will require resolving. Changes cannot be committed until conflicts have been resolved.
To update a version controlled item with other users' changes use one of the following methods:
- Right click on the database item in the Explorer Window and choose Update (get changes made by others) from the popup menu.
- Click the button on the File Toolbar to update the currently active window.
- If the currently active window is a Network or GeoExplorer, select Version control | Update (get changes made by others) from the Network menu.
- If the currently active window is a Digitisation Template, select Update (get changes made by others) from the Digitisation Template menu.
If changes have been made that conflict with changes made by another user, these conflicts must be resolved. If there are conflicts, the Resolve Update Conflicts Dialog is displayed. See Resolving Conflicts for more information.
If you open a local copy of a network which has uncommitted changes made by you but there are committed changes made by others, a message will be displayed asking of you would like to get the most recent version of the network.
