Checking out objects

Before users can edit registered objects, they must be checked out. The workflow is as follows: Check-out the object from the system, make the required edits, and check in the changes to the system.

Checking out an object for the first time creates a copy of the original live version.

Version information is updated in the system’s history when the object is checked back in. Only one person within the system can check out and work on any object at a given time.
