Lock a document

While you are working on a document, you can lock it to prevent others from editing or downloading it and then posting new versions to TeamForge .

You can lock a document when you create it or at any time afterward. When a document is locked, any user with the Document View permission can view or download the document. You can edit or download a locked document, if you are a Site Admin or a Document Administrator that have the option, Allow Document Admin to edit enabled in the LOCK DOCUMENT section.
  1. On the Document Details page, confirm that the lock status is currently Unlocked.
  2. Click EDIT / UPDATE. You can see this button at the top right corner of the page only if you have Document Edit Permission.
  3. On the Edit Document page, select appropriate check boxes in the LOCK DOCUMENT section.
  4. Click Save. The document is now locked. It is represented by the Padlock icon in the document list view.
