What is vaulting?
Use this setting on a folder when users want to explicitly lock documents for more user control. When a folder is set to Vault, users with update access to the folder can check-in and check-out documents from the folder for editing. Setting a folder to Vault can be done from the web and from the Drive. From the Drive, go to the Kenesto menu on a folder and click “Set as Vault” to vault or click “Set as a regular folder” to un-vault.
Note: Only the owner of the folder can vault and un-vault it.
