check in check out problem
Posted on 2005-04-04
I've got some confusion about how to use the check in check out feature. I've got it enabled, and I'm just not sure which way is which. It's enabled now. Once a long time ago I enabled it, then disabled it. That must have left some files in use because every time I went to upload a file it told me it was in use and asked if it was ok to upload anyway. Tired of this, I re-enabled it to try to set things straight, but I can't seem to do it.
If there is a green check mark does that mean *I* am using it? The other person using files can't? The terminology is not that clear to *me* anyway. If it's checked OUT is that a green check, or is that green check "checked IN"????
and when I am done or when I check it the other way there is a lock. What I REALLY want to do is not have this feature enabled, but I can't seem to clear the files of either a check or lock. It's either a green check or a lock. I need some help understanding this and getting is set back properly.
