How do I delete a current lock?

A lock results from having multiple sessions/screens open for one proposal, or from exiting a prior work session improperly. An improperly ended session, will cause COEUS to assume that someone still has the record open, and it's preventing those last updates from being changed by what it perceives as another person.

To fix this situation, and open the record again:


  • Close the proposal window you have open.
  • Select Current Locks, located on the upper right of your screen.
  • When the window opens, use the Remove option to delete the lock on the proposal.
  • Return to My Proposals and select the application you need to complete.

If this does not correct the issue or if you are not the project team member that has placed the lock on the proposal contact your sponsored programs representative for assistance
