Description MattRiedl85 2011-04-20 22:45:04 UTC

Currently, Open Office 3.3.0 does not appear to have a feature equivalent to MS Office's Notify feature.

This feature allows a user to open a document which is in use by another user on a network share or similar as read only, and receive a notification when the document becomes available again, prompting the user to open in read/write mode.

We use this regularly for gaining access to shared spreadsheets which multiple users update individually.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
