Manually Locking and Unlocking Proofs (Dashboard 2.0)

Lock the proofs 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 (adding comments or decisions) taken on a review. The only people able to lock/unlock reviews are proof owners or managers.

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