[Archivesspace_Users_Group] white screen lock-out

I have experienced a similar problem using RDE (also in Chrome browser). I have found that when it happens the resource gets "locked out" for about a day, and is accessible when I come back to it the next day. Even attempting to access the resource in another browser fails (tried IE and Firefox). Not so great when you've got a lot of data to enter! In my experimentation I have found that validating the rows before saving them seems to help prevent the "lock out" problem. But I haven't exactly been scientific about it. For longer finding aids I'm using a MS Excel>EAD>ASpace workflow to prevent data loss and lock outs.

Hi Chris and everyone,
I wouldn’t be trying to save more then 10 lines at once (referring to my earlier post about the ease of losing RDE data – which BTW has gotten better, maybe I’m getting the hang of it or maybe there was a tweak on the back end, but I haven’t lost my data nearly as often as the fall), but the white screen lock-out happens even when I erase an archival object. It happens on a regular basis for me, where I either have to log back in to our Aspace instance or even have to switch to a new browser and try again. I am using Google Chrome as the browser, but also use Safari if I have to.
My IT folks increased the uh – buffer (sorry, not techie) memory, but this lock-out still occurs. When it does, their logs are not able to show the problem.
Thanks so much for any help you could provide!

Sometimes when I am inputting data with the Rapid Data Entry (RDE) tool, our Aspace instance tends to go to a white screen and basically locks me out. I try even closing the browser window and then relogging back in, but it still will be completely white for trying to access the particular resource. I was just wondering if this is a local problem for me, or whether it is more widespread? Thank you so much, Lydia _______________________________________________
