Workflows rely on files not being in use. You can't change status or metadata with Smart Mover, archive to Elvis, or automate deleting on files that are in use. As a result several of our Smart Mover task fail due to files being in use. If Smart Mover would have an "Abort check-out" based on a named query then we would be able to enforce our workflow.
Our users don't always remember to check-in (forget closing images in Content Station, InDesign crashes, closing dossiers without doing article check-in, or just going on vacation). It would be great for our workflow if we could do abort check-out with Smart Mover.
Right now we have a named query in Enterprise indicating which files we should do abort check-out on. We have to manually run this several times of week to find the files and then manually abort check-out.
