You can change your default checkout folder by using the Options window.


To Change the Default Checkout folder

1.In Globodox, click the Globodox button.
2.Click the Options button. The Options window will now be launched.
3.In the Default checkout folder section click the Browse button to specify a new checkout folder.
4.Click the OK button to apply the settings.

When a document is checked out it is placed in the Checkout folder. The security of the document copy in the Checkout folder is the responsibility of the user who checked out the document. The copy of the document in the Globodox DB is still protected by Globodox. Therefore care must be taken when selecting a Checkout folder. Ideally a local folder on the user's machine should be set as the user's Checkout folder. However if the user is likely to logon to Globodox from different machines then a network accessible folder can be chosen as the user's Checkout folder. Windows security can be used to prevent unauthorized access to documents in the Checkout folder.
