Is there a way to know that another user has an app open in editor mode?

When I drop into editor mode on our apps, it would be very helpful to know if anyone else already has that same app open in editor mode, for obvious reasons.

Are there any exposed values upon which I could build a component that would do this?

For example we've already got some helpful emoji-laden text components that conveniently remind us if we're retoolContext.environment == "production" or "staging". Same concept, but with the goal of being able to see immediately "[user] has this app open in editor mode" without getting on Slack and waiting for an answer.

In the model browser I can easily see what I am doing in Retool via Globals/retoolContext, but what about other users? :thinking:


Yes, you will see the user's icon(avatar) in the following section at the top of the editor window if you are both in the same app.

:man_facepalming: I don't know how I've managed to gloss over / never notice that before.

Thanks @ScottR !
