I want to edit a document without allowing others to edit the same document. How do I "lock" this document so people cannot edit if it is open?
Please follow the following steps:
Go to the document view, click "more" then "lock". Mind you, it's a soft lock.
It will display a banner at the top that it's being edited, but can still upload a new one.
If you're the owner or group admin, you could technically change the permissions to prevent non-group admins from
uploading new versions (make it limited permission, or read only)
