To make changes to the content of a file, download the file, make the changes, and then re-upload the file to Clearvale. After uploading the file, optionally add any notes about the file, such as information about what you changed. Then click Save.
Using a Soft Lock
If you are working on a file that allows other people multiple to edit as well as yourself, place a soft lock on the file to indicate to others that changes are pending for the file. To put a soft lock on a file, click Lock on the detail page of the file. Make your changes to the file and then upload a newer version. When you have uploaded the new version, click Remove Lock to remove the soft lock from the file. It is important to note that a soft lock does not prevent others from making changes to the file—anyone with Edit permission for the file can remove the lock and upload a new version of their file.
If the lock has been removed, you should review the history log before uploading a new version of a file. The history log provides an audit trail of previous downloads, uploads, views, and user information. Verify whether or not another member has uploaded a new version since you began working on the file. If so, merge the changes from each file before uploading or you will overwrite another user’s work.
