    I thought I would highlight one of the recent new features of BIM 360 and Desktop Connector, File Locking. This is very important and a much needed feature especially for those working with .DWG files from AutoCAD products, as this now helps control who is currently accessing the file, in a way that is much easier to use.

    To lock the file simply right click and select Lock:

    Once locked, you can Unlock in the same way.

    This also lets you see who the file was locked by and the date locked:
