Lock Handling

easyDITA’s lock handling allows you to open and close files without having to manually lock or unlock files each time.
easyDITA’s lock handling system automatically locks a file once a user opens it for editing. Once a file is locked, other users cannot open the file for editing. A locked file can only be previewed by other users. This ensures a strong auditing trail to track and associate changes made to a file. When the file is closed, the lock is automatically released.
Note:If you’re an Administrator, you can force unlock files locked by others.
When a file is locked, a lock icon displays in the file listing to indicate that the file is locked. Hovering over the icon displays who the file is locked by.
Tip:You can use the Filters Tab to view all files locked by you or a specific user.
