LOCK an ERA file when someone starts to post to it so another user cannot access it and result in duplicate posting
An ERA file is locked by a user when one of the following occur in “Billing > AutoPayment Posting”:
• The file is selected and “Load Autoposting Data” is clicked
o “Autoposting Report” is clicked
o “Autopost Payments” is clicked
• If another user attempts access the ERA file, the subsequent user(s) would be notified that the file is locked by the initial user with the notification including the user who has the file locked.
Requested Steps to define spec: As soon as an ERA file is accessed/report run... the would become "locked"
Expected Result: Avoid duplicate posting of same ERA (this has happened multiple times with this practice... an ERA file is posted 2X
Actual Result: Would not allow another user to post an ERA that has been locked
Impact on Workflow: Greatly reduce the need to "un-do" the 2nd posting of the ERA
