« Go Back


If you are working in a company in SimaPro Flow with more users and you do not want others to do changes to a project you have created, then you can lock the project for changes. This can be done with the following steps:
  1. Open the project in Flow.
  2. Click on Project details in the left-side menu.
  3. Click on the tab Privacy and Ownership
  4. Tick the Lock project.

Now, no one, including yourself, can edit the project.

Keep in mind that, only the owner of the project can unlock the project for further editing. To unlock, you can follow the same instructions and just untick Lock project. 

Note! It is also possible to lock a company library and the procedure is the same as explained above.
