Check Out/In

To edit and update your project documents and files, you need to check them out.  If you just want to view a file, you don't need to check it out.

Check Out a File

  1. Select the file in the Tree Panel.
  2. In the File Panel, click 'Check Out'.
  3. The most recent version of the file will be copied to your Check Out folder (normally 'My Documents\piabce2') and opened on your desktop.

Check In a File

After you have edited and saved the file previously checked-out, you must check it back in to PIABCE.

  1. Select the file in the Tree Panel.  It should be shown as 'Checked Out'.
  2. Click the 'Check In' button. 
  3. This will show the 'Check In' form where you can optionally browse for the location of the file (if it's not in your normal Check Out folder) and optionally provide a description for the version.
  4. Click 'OK' to upload and increment the file version.
  5. The local file will be deleted from your Check Out folder.

N.B. The 'Check In' file process looks for a file of the same name that was checked out.  You can't check in a file with a different name by accident.

Undo Check Out

If a file is checked out, but you decide you don't want to check it back in then you can choose to undo the check out.

  1. Select the file in the Tree Panel.
  2. Click the 'Undo Check Out' button.
  3. The file will be shown as 'Not Checked Out'.
  4. The local file will be deleted from your Check Out folder.
