  • Check In. Checks-in selected items. Works with one or multiple items selected.
  • Options. Opens the Options window where settings such as default parameters can be edited. See Options.
  • Help. Opens this Help Screen.

Column Headers

  • Checkbox. Check this box to select one or more items. To select all items, check the box in the column heading. After one or more boxes are checked, click a toolbar button to take an action on the selected item or items. Many toolbar actions, such as Publish and Unpublish, can work with multiple items. Others, such as Edit, only work on one item at a time. If multiple items are checked and you press Edit, the first item will be opened for editing.
  • Database Table. The name of the table checked.
  • Items to check-in. Items that need to be checked-in.

Quick Tips

  • Make sure no one is busy editing any items before you perform a global check-in. When a Global Check-in is done, all items are checked in, including those currently being edited.
