Function that causes a new window to be opened to protect a user's work when he or she has edited an iView (e.g. SAP transaction) and navigates away from the iView. Without this function, the user would lose all his or her work. WorkProtect mode must be activated by the iView.

Write Project Mode for the PCD

When write-project mode is active, the editors are either not available at all or have limited functionality in the portal. This is especially useful during data migration, backups or updates of the system in order to avoid data loss of inconsistency (also in SAP NetWeaver 2004 SP12).
