Checking Pages Out and In
Pages are checked in and out by users when they are edited. When a page is checked out to a user more functionalities become available. Additionally, checking out a page locks the file to you so other users can't edit the content until it's been checked back in. You can have multiples files checked out simultaneously.
Checking Out a Page
- Click the Lightbulb icon in the Page Actions toolbar while editing any page to check
out a file. This will lock the file to you, so other users will not be able to edit
the content until the file is checked back in or published.
- Alternatively, you can check out files from the File Navigation Sidebar or the Content > Pages list view. Click the Lightbulb icon for any pages to check the file out.
Checking In a Page
Checking a page back in unlocks the file and allows other users are able to edit the content. Keep in mind after checking a file back in certain functionalities will become unavailable.
- Clicking the Lightbulb again will check the file back in. Neither action can be performed if the Lightbulb icon has been replaced by a Lock icon, indicating the file is already checked out to another user.
- Keep track of your checked out content in the "My Checked-Out Content" Gadget either
from the Gadget sidebar or in the Dashboard.
