Save conflict resolution is completely broken in ND6/7 Erik C. Brooks 20.Feb.08 09:13 AM Lotus Notes Domino Designer 7.0.3All Platforms
First of all, your $ConflictAction field needs to be text, e.g. "1" not 1.
But ALL save conflict resolution that you describe is completely broken in ND6 and ND7, over the web and in Notes. Thankfully replication conflict resolution works properly. I'm not sure of the current status of the bug in ND8.
You can prevent save conflicts over the web by manually removing the "%%ModDate" field via JS before submitting over the web. But to what side effect is anybody's guess...
Go report it to Lotus Support and jump on the bandwagon. I don't remember the SPR# off the top of my head, but it's a pretty annoying bug.
