Chapter 32. Collaboration with FrontPage 2003 > Checking Documents In and Out

Checking Documents In and Out

Another FrontPage 2003 feature key to the collaborative authoring environment is the capability to check documents in and out from a Web site. During the time that a document is checked out, the individual who checked it out is the only person allowed to edit it. This option can be used to both prevent users from making multiple edits to a single file and editing a file they shouldn't (see Figure 32.3). This option was not available in earlier versions of FrontPage and was the source of a number of problems. The implications of such a tool quickly become obvious the first time one user overwrites the changes made by another.

Figure 32.3. FrontPage makes it clear when the document is not yours to check out. It also lets you know whom you must contact to get the document.
