Openning file when it's already open somewhere else

We are 3 people and we need to work on the same file (in a common folder in a server). We have the problem that Mindjet doesn't warn us (like Office does for example) when we try to open the file and it's already open by another user (so we often have data overwritting problems). Doesn't Mindjet have the possibility to display the message "File is already open, you can only access it in READ ONLY mode" (like most of other programs have)? Thanks a lot

If you use Mindjet web- and mobile facilities (included in your PLUS subscription) there is a checkin-checkout function that you can use.
That may be a good solution for multiple people working on the same map.
You can even work with more people at the same time, from various locations.
