Based on user feedback, Northeastern's Coeus Support team investigated the possibility of displaying the name of the user who is in a proposal when another user opens the same proposal. Coeus would display in red a warning that said “Another user is using Development Proposal #xxxxxxx.”
After consultation with Coeus developers, it was discovered that feature was missing from Northeastern's version of Coeus. The feature to display the name of the user who has the proposal open has now been added and activated . When a user opens a proposal that someone else has open, Coeus will now display in red a warning that says “Cyr, Joan M is using Development Proposal #xxxxxxx.”
Displaying the name of the user who has opened a proposal should assist other users who are working on the same proposal with valuable information in real-time so they can more efficiently collaborate on the proposal.
