Lock items with projects workflow

Locking items during a projects workflow can help avoid unwanted changes. For example, a project administrator might want to leave items unlocked while in "draft" status, but lock them when they reach "approved" status.


You must have organization or project administrator permissions to configure projects workflow.

Items can also be automatically locked by the projects workflow. These items show a gray lock after their name and a blue lock in List View. 

System locked items unlock when transitioned through projects workflow or by an organization or project administrator.


To add an automatic lock to the workflow:

  1. Select Admin > Project > Workflow.

  2. In the Lock? column, select the lock icon to include (or remove) an automatic lock in the workflow.

  3. Select Save.
