Check In/ Check Out
Adept’s check in / check out feature eliminates one of the most common document management challenges by ensuring that only one user can edit a file at a time. This prevents accidental overwrites and duplication of effort, while ensuring proper version control.
When a user wants to make changes to a file managed by Adept, they check out a copy to their Adept Work Area. The original file is automatically locked safely on the server. Other users across the enterprise see the file is checked out and are not able to make changes to the file until it is checked back in.
Because file editing is being done on a copy, the original copy serves as an instant backup should the changes being made need to be discarded for any reason.

Lets users across the enterprise know which documents are under revision and by whom
Ensures work takes place on a copy so the original remains safely intact until the changes are released
