Locking / Restrictions

Easil supports locking designs on two levels - element and document. This article explains the various locking options available.


Easil’s Brand Restrictions bring a new level of control to your entire team from micro businesses to large, multiple-team corporations. Create and control how member of your team edit and share your custom team designs – element by element. Once set, Brand Restrictions define which layers, elements, fonts, colors and images can be edited – in seconds. All you need to do is toggle the padlock icon on or off for each item. You will need to have a 'Designer' permission applied to your role in order to be able to control the restrictions.

To access locking functionality, click the Lock icon in the sidebar. There are two tabs/sections which are described below.

A locked item is signified by a locked icon, and shows that that editing option will not be available by team Members who do not have 'Designer' role applied.

An unlocked item is shown with an unlocked icon. This results in any user being able to freely apply that option to the template.


Applying Restrictions to your Designs

Restrictions are applied to elements in your design, as well as entire document restrictions. Below we explain the differences between each. You will notice that as you apply restrictions to your document, they will immediately appear for you within your working document as well, with options being removed from the Actionbar, or, greyed out from the sidebar, instantly providing a block to that type of editing.

Document Restrictions

When there are no design elements selected, the 'Document' tab will be the active tab. This section allows you to control restrictions that apply to the entire design.

Clicking the Select/unselect all option will toggle on/off all the options.
