Locking Data Values when Data Set is Complete


Dear All,

This is with reference to the previous discussion on similar issue in 2015
(link below)

As I'm aware disabling editing of data values happens through locking
mechanism which is mainly dependent on expiry date and data approval.

We have a situation in Sri Lanka where we are already using expiry date and
data approval in the data workflow. But due to practical reasons we cannot
set a relatively short expiry date. We are assessing performance of
facilities based on data set completion date. To achieve our objective we
need to lock the data set after completion thereby if a user needs to edit
data again then he first has to incomplete data set (so completeness date
changes accordingly).

Currently we are using a modified form.js in web-data entry folder to
achieve this. Just wondering whether there are any plans to implement this
feature in near future.

Thank you.
