Check first if the input is open in another process (corrupted)

is there any chance to set Message tool (or other) to show if any of the inputs is being used by another user?

I have a big flow with inputs located in a shared drive available within team and if someone has them open the error message (input used by another user) appears after a long time once the whole flow has run. Would be good to know it at once, just after running the flow.

Hi @Grzegorz,


I'd attempt to do this with Chained Apps. First App basically has all your reads and Browse Tools (no output) and you chain your main App behind it (untouched). The first App will immediately throw those errors and it wouldn't start your second App at all because it did not finish the first one successfully.


Hope this helps.
