Thanks, that could work. I starred it too, let's see if this eventually happen.

comment Preventing concurrent editing of a cell in Google Spreadsheet?
Erf. I'd rather we focus on the core issue than on a imaginary use case, but if you really insist, the real situation is that we (a non-profit) are using the spreadsheet as a sign up list. Several volunteers sell tickets and input the ID number of the guests in a column, and sometimes, considering that up to 4 persons write at the same time on a rapid succession, two volunteers will select the same cell and overwrite each other without realizing it, resulting in a guest not being registered. Hence the question: is there a way to lock a specific cell when a user is already editing it?

I mean two people selecting the same cell, one writing SUM, and the other writing COUNT almost simultaneously, the result being "COUNT". What you describe can't happen on Spreadsheet (it can happen on Documents though). It would be nice if once a cell is selected, it was locked for the user that selected it.

The problem occurs on every type of group

As it turns out, the problem also exists with open groups. The difference between open and closed is that non-members can see the posts in the group, but it doesn't change the membership process: you still need to manually approve each request, and you always get notified.
