suppose we are getting input in the editable field through Report, varicent should have lock functionality in the report itself so that data for a particular month can't be edited/submitted again after a specific period. For eg: if disputes are submitted for Aug 2017 and dispute window is closed so in september or subsequent month developer should be able to lock the data for Aug on report itself and filed should not be editable for Aug month. While it should be editable for coming month only like September or October.
This feature will help us when web forms will be phased out in newer versions. it will help us to maintain the data integrity and consistency.
