Show Locks


Unlock All

If for some reason a record is locked preventing other users from accessing info then the user who has the record locked can unlock the record. If for some reason this is unsuccessful then the system administrator can log the offending user by accessing the log of user function.

If all else fails there is a special separate copy of Oinsight to unlock records. This is only available to users that have access to the application server, usually via RDP where there is a separate, special copy of Oinsight called UD Manager where all locks are displayed and can be unlocked.
