Chapter 12. Publishing and Managing a Web Site > Checking Documents In and Out

Checking Documents In and Out

If you are working in a workgroup, there is a chance that two people might start to work on the same file at the same time, which creates a conflict. Problems occur when one or the other saves the file overwriting changes the other one might be making. To avoid this problem, the Web site administrator can enable document check-in and check-out. This locks out other people from making changes and saves a copy for possible restoration. When a file is checked out to you, a green check mark appears in the Folder List. A gray padlock means the file is checked out to someone else.

Enable Document Check-In and Check-Out

Click the Tools menu, and then click Site Settings.

Click the General tab.

Select the Use Document Check-In And Check-Out check box.

Click the option you want to check out files from a remote or local site.

Select or clear the Prompt To Check Out File When Opening A Page check box.

Click OK, and then click Yes to confirm the change.
