Using Sakai 2.8, why am I getting a message about a tool being unavailable for editing, and what can I do about it?
When a user with maintain
quits a task (e.g., if someone starts
posting an announcement and decides not to continue), the tool can
become locked. If you begin a task and decide not to complete it, you
need to click
Draft. If you simply leave the task and go to another part of
the application, or log out of the application, the tool may become
locked and other users with access to it in your site will not
be able to use it.
|If you find that a tool is locked, the person who was doing the
editing can try clicking the reset button ( |
). If this person is not available to do so, the lock should clear by itself in 20 minutes.
