contentCloud | Authoring units | Lock and unlock a unit
When a contentCloud user is editing an authoring unit, it is locked. When the user exits the content editor, the unit is unlocked.
As long as a unit is locked, no other user can work on it, so it's very important to unlock them when we're done our work.
In addition, unlocking a unit generates a new version or backup, which will help us to have adequate control of the changes we make. (See here to know more about the versions).
To unlock a unit we have two modes:
- From the contentCloud editor, by pressing the Exit button in the upper right area.
- From the Unit Management area, press the "Unlock".
- From the unit's options menu.
