Our website is that of a small church and we have different people doing specific but generally different functions on the website.  For instance, one person loads audio files via the file manager and when that has happened, I provide the text and the link to access the file from one of the pages.  Our problem is that it would appear that we can both logon at the same time, with no warning that there are multiple people logged in.  I have done some limited reading of other posts and understand that allowing multiple people on the website manager is a difficult task for Homestead developers.  However, in our case, a simple warning a the time of the initial login would suffice, especially since we all have to use the same userid and password.  We just don't need to step on each others toes, perhaps corrupting parts of the website.  What can we do about this problem now, or can it be considered for some fix in the future?

I have a client who often adds info to the site and I work on it as well. We avoid overlapping simply by emailing each other when we plan to work on the site and then email again when we log out. Its' worked very well for us.

That's what we're doing now.  Works fine as long as everyone remembers to email the crew and to check email before logging in.  I am embarrassed to admit, I am the worst offender.
