    MD Editor: Release Assignment, record is still locked

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Click Release Assignment on a locked record; the record appears locked.
    * Lock changes to Unassigned.


    This is expected behavior:
    The "locked by: unassigned" indicates that the first cataloger that will edit it will get a "working copy" with all changes done by the last cataloger.
    The record is not truly locked, and can be edited by a cataloger.
