Conflict Management

Citavi Team lets multiple people work on a Citavi project at the same time. Under certain condtions, two users may be making changes to a reference at the same time. This is known as a conflict.

In such cases, Citavi solves conflicts by saving the changes of the user who saved changes last, as shown in the following example:

Conflict management always occurs at the entity level. If User A changes the ISBN for a reference and User B changes a quotation, no conflict occurs since quotations are a different entity than a reference is.
