When a user with
quits a task (for example, if someone starts
posting an announcement and decides not to continue), the tool can
become locked. If you begin a task and decide not to complete it, you
need to click
Cancel (or if appropriate,
Draft). If you simply leave the task and go to another part of
the application, or log out of the application, the tool will become
locked and other users with maintain rights in your worksite will not
be able to use it.
If you find that a tool is locked, the person who was doing the editing can try clicking the reset button (the upward pointing arrow in the upper left corner of the window, next to the name of the tool). If this person is not available to do this, the lock should clear by itself in 20 minutes.
