Checking out files is a great feature that keeps files in their native format while you view or edit it. When a file is saved on eFileCabinet’s Cloud or in an internal network, it is important to make sure that multiple people aren’t overriding one another. While you’ve got a file checked out, no one else can edit it until you check it back in. This saves time and resources by making sure that two or more employees are not overriding one another’s edits.
