How module works

The module will start displaying admin user "First name & Last name" if any other admin user is viewing the same page.

Whenever a user accesses any page in admin, the module will check if any other user is accessing the same URL/page. Suppose any admin user is accessing the same page. In that case, the module will display the name of the Magento admin user to both admin users to know who the other people are working on in the same section.

Here is an example of multiple admin users trying to access the order section:

Admin user 1 Admin user 2

Similarly, below is the image which shows that when accessing the category section, it tells the current Magento admin user that user "HarshitShah" is also accessing the category page.

The module provides Ajax functionality. Every 30 seconds, it checks the list of pages/URLs that admin users access. The module provides a real-time update to the admin users accessing the same pages. So if any user leaves the page, other users accessing the same page will notice that because that admin user name will stop displaying under the "Viewing" section.

The module supports cron functionality that runs every 3 min. It removes the stored DB data of URLs/Page accessed by admin users.
