When using forced check out/in, it's completely impossible to re-arrange a folder structure without checking out files individually
As the title explains, when using forced check out/in, it's completely impossible to re-arrange a folder structure without checking out files individually. And yes, I do know you can bulk check out files IF:
- you revert to the classic interface
- you select the files inside every folder
But this clearly shows it's virtually impossible to change a folder structure with let's say 50 sub folders each containing hundreds or thousands of files given that you need to go in and out of every folder multiple times.
Disabling the forced check out/in is for many a big no-no as that functionality guarantees proper audit control and safe keeping for data integrity purposes.
Suggested solution - to me extremely straight forward:
- Make it possible to select a folder (and implicitly its files, subfolders, etc) for bulk check out/in
- IF THERE's EVEN A SINGLE FILE checked out by someone else, the action will be canceled (ofc, with a report file on what caused the cancelation).
Do it - make it happen!
