We recently upgraded our company to Office365 from Google Apps (more details in another post). Our colleagues from Marketing Department never used SharePoint in real production so I received an interesting question: “Toni, how do I lock a document so no one can change it while I do?”

The answer is, you need to perform check out. Here is how you can do this in SharePoint 2013:

1. Check out a document in SharePoint 2013

Check out document in SharePoint 2013



 2. Check out a document from Word 2013 (or 2010)
