Finish Editing Option

Hi,

When authors are editing a project, are they supposed to "finish editing" this project as well as its parent group so that other authors can create content in this parent group ?

Thanks you!

If you 'Start Editing' an object, you lock it so no-one else can edit it. When you 'Finish Editing' you release that lock. A Group is an object, just like a Project or a Book Page. So if you Start Editing a Group (even if this is done automatically) so you can create a Project within it, you are locking it and no-one else can create objects within it. So yes, in general, a soon as you have created your new Project within that Group, it is a best practice to Finish Editing on the Group, so others can edit it if they need to.

Is this also valid for the root group ? Like if someone creates a group within root and starts editing it, can other authors create groups in root as well ?

Many thanks again.

Yes, also applies to Root. Root is also just an object. But I'd really question the need for people to be editing Root. As part of your initial set-up you should create your Workarea structure, which typically includes the Groups immediately below Root, and you shouldn't often need to change the structure at that highest level. If multiple Authors are creating Groups or content directly under Root something's wrong (imho / best practices).
