Manually Locking and Unlocking Proofs

Lock the proof if needed so no further comments or decisions can be made or changed.

Updated over a week ago

Summary: If needed, proofs can be manually locked or unlocked at any time, preventing any further action taken on a proof such as comments or decisions. The only people able to lock/unlock proofs are proof owners or managers.

This article outlines how described functionality appears and operates in the old layout. If you are using Dashboard 2.0, please refer to the corresponding article in the Help Center.

By default, proof owners are given full permissions. The proof owner can also assign the Manage role to any reviewer who is a registered user in their account.
