Creating a Distributed Editing Environment

If you have a group of people who are working together on a site, the need will eventually arise for people to edit files simultaneously. Unfortunately, the problem is that two people might try to edit the same file at the same time. In the normal editing mode, the last person to save the file will overwrite the changes made by the first person. Constantly having to tell your colleagues what file you're working on is not an efficient way of solving the problem either. As usual, Dreamweaver MX has a tool that makes this a nonissue.

Using a Check In/Out system, you can exert ownership over a file, and other people will not be able to access the file you have “checked out.” It's similar to checking a book out of a library. When you check the book out, it's in your possession until you're done. People can look up who has it, but can't access it. When you're done, you check the book back in and other people can check it out.
