Question About Documented Feature

A member of my team came across some documentation about automatic asset locking when an asset is edited. From testing, it doesn't appear that this actually occurs.

Any information about how this feature works (or settings we might have that would cause it not to work) would be helpful.

Unlike the automatic locks that are created during editing, the manual locks do not automatically expire. The asset must be unlocked by the same user or by an administrator.

    Hi Justin,

    Let me double-check, but I believe the auto lock refers to only one user being able to edit an asset at a time; otherwise, the subsequent submissions will prompt the user if they want to overwrite the previous changes that were made to the asset.

    Hi Justin,

    My apologies for not responding sooner. Reading over the content on the Assets page, I almost positive automatic locks is referring to the message you receive when concurrent edits are made to the same asset. That is, when one user edits an asset, it becomes locked so subsequent edits by other users will prompt the user with a message stating they will overwrite another user's changed.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
