Do I have to check out a program right before I check one in?
Posted by Elena Scire on 21 November 2008 11:31 AM
Checking out a program and checking in a program are two completely separate tasks. ANYONE can check out a program, but only you (with your password) can check in a program.

Because they are completely separate tasks, you need not check out a program and check it in within a certain time limit. If you already have AORs that you are sure are the right ones you want to submit, you can check them in at any time, providing that your password is activated.
