To enable design locking, open up the database properties info box and select "Allow design locking." In Domino Designer, you can then right click on a design element and select "Lock" or select "Lock Design Element" from the "Design" menu.
When a design element is locked, it can only be unlocked by the person who locked it or anyone who is a manager of the database.
