  • Conflict resolving while editing

You might have seen an overlay while you've worked on your content. This happens if you're working on a content item that has been updated from another user or even from yourself and your current tab has an older version.

Example Scenario:

  1. Editor B opens the content item "Article 1"
  2. Editor A changes content in content item "Article 1" and presses Save.
  3. Editor B still has the old "Article 1" open in its tab
  4. Editor B now changes content without having the content from Editor A, as they opened the "Article 1" before the changes where made
  5. Conflict Resolving overlay shows for Editor B
