File locked for editing, user not editing it.

Copper Contributor

Hi,

This seems to have been an issue in the past (in 2020) but I ham having this issue now.

Some users seem to find that they get a message to say "locked for editing" by them, they don't currently have it open.

Is there a way to stop this occurring - is it a sequence of events that causes this?

Can a admin unlock this document?

If the document library has check out to edit enabled, does this stop this issue?

 

Thanks

Rosie

It seems like this issue has resurfaced, despite being reported in 2020. Some users are experiencing a message indicating that a file is "locked for editing" even when they don't have it open. Unfortunately, there might not be a straightforward solution, but it's worth exploring possible causes and troubleshooting steps to address it.
