Sharing Documents Using SharePoint Team Services

After you have documents stored on a team site, you (and other members of the team site) can download and check out the documents for sharing purposes. Checking out a document is much like reserving a book at the library. You're marking the document as available only for you. Others can still view and edit the document; however, they will be working with the original copy of the document, rather than the checked-out copy. The following example illustrates the process of checking out and checking in a document.

Laura is the author of a Network Infrastructure Upgrade Agenda document. After creating the document, she uploads it to the local team site for viewing by all the members of her team. Two hours after she posts the document, she realizes that she forgot to add the Web site links she wants her team to review before the meeting. So Laura visits the team site and checks out the document. After the document is checked out, she opens the document for editing in Microsoft Office Word. In the middle of making her changes, Laura is called away to a meeting. She leaves the document open on her computer without checking the document back in to the team site.
