A process flow can be modified only by one person at a time.

If User A presses the check-out option to modify a process, Bizagi won't allow user B to modify the process until the user A had closed the process modeler and had pressed the check in option.

If user A has opened the process diagram via the Process Wizard, step one, the process will also be checked-out and user B won't be able to modify it unit user A closes it. If the process is opened with the Process Wizard, Bizagi will automatically check it in.

 

When a process is check-out in the Expert View it will have a small green checkmark. Right click the process version and select Check.out properties to know who has the process.
