Check out and check in a project

If you open a project in edit mode, it is checked out, and when you close it, it is checked in. If you open a project in read-only mode, it is not checked out.

Check out a project

When you open a project in edit mode, Qeystone checks it out to the computer you are working on and locks it in the repository, which means only you can edit the project. Other users can view the project while it is checked out to you, but they cannot edit it. A project remains checked out until you close it. Only owners, administrators, and users who have Can Edit access can open a project in edit mode.

  • To check out a project, in Qeystone Tools, open the project in edit mode. The following table shows the checkout rules that apply to different Qeystone roles.

    Project Owners
    • If you open a project that you own, and it is not checked out by a different user, then Qeystone checks out the project and locks it for editing.
    • If you open a project that you own, and it is checked out by a different user, then Qeystone opens it in read-only mode.
    • If you open a project that you own, and then save it as a new project, Qeystone closes the original project, checks it in, and then checks out the new project and locks it for editing.
    Users and administrators
    • If you open a project as a user who has Can View access, then Qeystone does not check out the project and opens it in read-only mode.
    • If you open a project as an administrator or as a user who has Can Edit access, then Qeystone gives you the option to open the project in read-only mode or edit mode. If you open the project in edit mode, then Qeystone checks it out and locks it for editing.

Check in a project

When you close a project that you opened in edit mode, Qeystone checks in the project.

To check in a project, in Qeystone Tools, close the project.
