Check-in and Check-out

Check-In and Check-Out procedures allow users to change the file of a document. In LogicalDOC each document has an associated file and from time to time this one need to be updated, with this feature many people can work and edit the same document in a synchronized way so that no modifications are lost or overwritten. Users can view the status of documents, and know if a document is currently being worked or blocked and what is the person that is editing it. While a document is in the Check-Out status, it is always available for read-only operations like search and browsing.
