Project Sharing: Ability to 'Request' checked out items


In Project Sharing, we are often blocked from an operation, as the operation requires items 'checked out' by another user.


In the current workflow, we must ask the other user to 'release' in order to proceed. 


The other user would suspend their current work, navigate to, and select the relevant object (or multiple objects) and then 'release'.


Since this can involve a large number of objects, and take a long time to navigate to each section for 'release', we find it easier for both users to perform a full 'save and commit' instead. 


This workflow is very disruptive to both users. 


A better way is for relevant 'checked out' items to be requested within the 'Operation Cannot Be Completed' error window (ArchiCAD has this). See mockups below. 


If we can 'Request All Listed Items' for a quick and limited 'save and commit' on the relevant items only, then both users get back on with their work quickly.
