We are on 5.1 SP1 and have a dimension locking problem:
We have over 800 entities in a complex structure.
If the whole company or even a region is locked (including children) then if someone wants to change one base entity then we have two equally poor options:
1. Unlock all the parents above the base entity individually from the Work Status page. This can be very time consuming and complicated too.
2. Unlock from the top locked parent and ALL children. This destroys the previous lock information (user, time and status) and leaves the whole time period open for all those entites to change.
Does anyone have any ideas please. Much appreciated.
