How it works

UDH offers basic concurrent user support for users that are logged into UDH at the same time. The options available to you are dependent on whether you have unsaved changes of your own. To begin, all active users should be working on the latest published version of a profile. Users are informed when changes are introduced by other active members, regardless of whether or not the change has been saved and published. When another active user saves changes to the profile, you are prompted to integrate their changes into your working environment or to keep working.

Viewing other active users

When you log in to UDH, the product component that you are working in is highlighted in blue in the left navigation bar, as shown in the following example. If another user is also logged in to UDH and active, that user's profile initials display as a circle with a unique background color at the top of the screen. The same unique color is used to highlight which area of the product the other user is currently working in.

Acknowledging that another user has initiated a change

If another active user has started a change, whether or not they have saved and published the change, a message displays to let you know that a change is in progress. Click Got it to acknowledge the message and then reach out to the user displayed to ensure that your changes do not overwrite each other.

When a profile update from another user is detected

When another active user saves and publishes an update, your profile will need to be updated.
