Warning if workbook already open

score 10

We have found that it is possible for two people to open a workbook and work on it at the same time without the other knowing and also for the same person to accidently open it twice. This results in wasted effort as changes are lost. Version history is no help if you want changes from both versions. It would be really helpful if Tableau could warn you that a workbook is already open, or prevent you from opening a second concurrent version in the same way that Excel does.
