  • What happens when they try to check in? Are they able to check out and in through the browser? Are they checking out and in using different approaches? What is the error/what happens when they try to check in? Dec 5, 2019 at 14:06
  • Once they drop the file into the Library the user cannot check in the file or change any of the permissions. The (...) elipsies shows up, but the user cannot interact with it.
