Undoing Checkouts

This topic applies to Office-based doclets of all types—regular, reference, and supplemental. Unless otherwise noted, the term doclets refers to all Office-based doclet types.

In Narrative Reporting, you can undo a checkout to remove the lock and allow other users to check out and modify the doclet. Changes that you made after checking out the doclet , even if you uploaded it, are discarded when you cancel the checkout. To keep your changes, select Check In instead.

To undo a checkout:

  1. If the Office-based doclet is not already open, in the Smart View Panel, navigate to the doclet and double-click it.
  2. In the Narrative Reporting ribbon, click Cancel Checkout.

    The Cancel Checkout button from the Performance Reporting ribbon
