Only administrators have the ability to unlock chapters which are locked by other users. This should be done sparingly and only in cases where the user who has the file locked has agreed to it.
Once a chapter is unlocked the user will no longer be able to save any work they’ve done to the server. Note: all users have the ability to unlock chapters which they themselves have checked out.
