Step-by-Step Instructions: Using Checkin/Checkout
Ever checked out a library book? The Checkin/Checkout feature follows the same concept. On enabled folders, you may check out a file to download and then edit. The Checkout locks the file, keeping others from downloading and making changes to the file at the same time. This allows for a collaborative environment with strict version control.

Let's Get Started:
1. Login to your account.
2. Locate the file you want to checkout in the folder tree.
3. Right click on the file and select Checkout.
4. The Download screen will appear. Enter any necessary comments or additional email notification recipients, then click Download and Checkout. The folder tree will reflect the checkout.
5. You'll be prompted to open the file or save it to your local machine. Once you've viewed/edited the file you may check it back in by uploading it. The checkin is automatic and the account holder will receive notification that the file has been checked in.
