What Does CHECK-OUT Mean on Microsoft Teams?

On Microsoft Teams, a file can be checked out by a user to ensure that no-one else is able to edit it. CHECK OUT is an optional feature that needs to be activated and that ensures there is only one current copy of each file, thereby preventing conflicts in an environment where multiple people might want to edit a file at the same time.

When a file is checked out in Teams, a green arrow appears next to the file name. When a user has finished with a checked-out file, it should be checked in, to allow other team members to edit the content.
