Thereby, users can block documents, they want to work on offline, e.g. while traveling. Later the document can be reuploaded without leading to conflicts in changes made by other users. Checking documents in and out plays an important role, when introducing QM workflows according to DIN EN ISO 9001 ff. in the company with the help of an electronic Document Management System.
