Check in & check out a file

OnePlace Docs offers the ability to check a file out or into a library directly from the desktop.


Check out a file

A document can be checked out by selecting check out in the OnePlaceDocs ribbon. The file is shown to be checked out by the blue icon.

Hovering over the file will show the user name of the person who has checked out the document.


Check in a file

OnePlaceDocs allows users to also check in documents directly from the desktop and apply any necessary comments to the file.

Discard check out

The option to discard a check out is also available. If the user selects this option, the changes made will be lost and the file will be checked back in.
