Why there is Check In / Check Out:
Assembly Planner’s database stores the ‘master copy’ of process, part and resource information. When a user edits something, they are working on a ‘local copy’ that has been checked out to them. Only one ‘local copy’ is allowed at a time - a user cannot edit something another user has checked out. Changes are not created in the database until the local copy is checked in again.
What the symbols mean:
Lock symbol: Entity is checked in to the database
Blank: You have the entity checked out
Red Circle: Entity is checked out to another user
(Place cursor over the red circle or in the red box in the corner of the cell)
