LANSA's task tracking can be set to allow a locked object to be transferred from one Task ID to another Task ID. This is a very powerful ability that increases the flexibility of how you manage tasks.
When an object is locked by a task, it cannot be accessed by another task until the current task releases its lock. When status-based locks are used, the Task Status must be set to Finished (FIN) for the lock to be released. By transferring a locked object to another task, you no longer have to set the current task to Finished.
The ability to transfer object locks supports Combined Approaches to task tracking. For example, when using Tracking By Developer, you do not want to be closing a developer's task to release object locks. Instead, you can transfer a locked object to another task supporting Tracking by Product.
