Checking In Files

After you finish working on the particular Collection, check-in and make the file publicly available. If the file is not checked-in, the other user with permission won’t be able to work on that particular file if required. A file needs to be checked in to the application only if it has been checked out before. A file before check in i.e. in check out state can be viewed in the application. You cannot check in a file if it has been checked out.

Follow the given procedure to check in the selected file(s):

  1. Select the already checked out files from the specific folder in the list of Collection Files.
