I have previously show how you can use DFFS rules to require check out of list items before editing.
This worked reasonably well in most cases, but if you had a large form with lots of rules, the loading would take twice the time because all the DFFS rules would have to run before the check-out action could take place – and then the form was reloaded.
To overcome this, and also make the setup easier, I have now built support for requiring check-out of list items into DFFS. You find the settings in the Misc tab when editing the EditForm of a list item.
Please note that this is in BETA (v4.3.68), and I need your feedback to ensure it works as expected before releasing it in the production version.
You find the DFFS package in the DFFS_BETA folder in the download section.
