Real-Time Synchronization with file locking
On the file icon a lock will appear to indicate that the file is locked for editing. Users can still look into the file or create a new copy of the file.
Every user can request information about the user that locked the file. Administrators can always override and remove the file lock.
Specific file types can be locked automatically
- Decide for each shared folder if you want Microsoft Word and Excel files to be locked automatically when opened by a user.
- The user can subsequently decide whether he or she wants to receive a confirmation message of the automatic locking, or not.
If the file is locked by another user, you will receive a "Read-Only" notification while saving.
