How does the lock/unlock functionality operate?

However, if the code is in unlocked state, permitted users can also modify the code and the change made by permitted users will be visible to the owner of the code.

How can I permit the users to view and modify my code?

You can enter the e-mail id or the user id of the person in the text box and click the Permit button. An e-mail notification will be sent to the person regarding the same. You can also view the list of permitted users by clicking on the icon that apears on the right side of the Permit button.

I'm a permitted user; Can I change the visibility mode of the code?

No. Only owner can change the visibility mode of the code.

How do I share the code with my team members?
