Comprehensive Operating Systems

Sophora’s DeckClient and the add-on MobileClient are operating across editors. Therefore a synchronous editing of documents within both clients is possible. Editors don’t need to edit documents for each single client separately. In order to avoid the working on documents at the same time by different editors, a notification appears when opening a document, which is already in use. The notification says that the document is locked.
