    It's hard to believe this is still not possible in 2020.

    This is very annoying for our users.

    It would be great to have:

    - The ability to see who has locks on a file, and send them a message directly from that view in order to ask whether it is legitimate.
    (A) Users should have a view that shows all of their own locks, perhaps per Document Library or by Recency.
    (B) Admins should be able to search by Document Library or by User, etc. Or,
    (C) If empowering Users thru a view feels like "too much" for most users, then empower Admins / Owners to be able to prompt Users to take action.

    - The ability to force release a "phantom" / "illegitimate" lock. This should be possible for any User to do for any of their own locks, and for any Admin to do for any locks.

    - If a legitimate lock is forced released (i.e., there have been changes made by the User whose lock it is since the last auto-save, or there has been activity by that User in the document "recently"), then whoever is trying to force release the lock should be presented with options:
    (A) Save the document as a new version and release the lock and kick the User out of the document,
    (B) Notify the User / send a message to the User, or
    (C) Do nothing.

    - Instructions on how to "properly" close a file in each application type (i.e., Word Online vs Word 365 vs Word 2016) such that locks will be properly released. It is evident that closing a tab in Word Online, even if no changes have been made for minutes or longer, does not properly release locks.

    This would be great! There are a few ways to accomplish this as an administrator / with PowerShell access (which I don't have)… but being able to do this as an end-user / Site Owner would be so helpful!

    This would be especially helpful for reporting on change history.

    It's surprising that this is not a default feature.

    How is this still a thing? Having descriptive and well organized file and folder names makes finding things when you need them way easier.

    Are there really still technical limitations on URLs to 250 or 400 characters? In 2018?? Amazing.
