Can no longer lock files on the web, can only lock via a synced folder on desktop.

Can no longer lock files on the web, can only lock via a synced folder on desktop.

I'm no longer seeing the option to lock a file via the web. The Dropbox instructions say it can be done on both the Desktop and Web platforms... https://help.dropbox.com/organize/file-locking

 

Any help would be great appreciated.

The option is still available via the web. Click the ellipsis next to a file and select Activity and then Lock editing.
