Feature Request: file locking or concurrency for Desktops


We have a team of 10 routinely using Balsamiq Desktop to great effect. We’ve had occasion where work by one individual has overwritten someone else’s, so some form of file locking or concurrency checking would be really appreciated.

We tested the online version but weren’t keen on the performance.


Hi @Jason_Scott and thanks for getting in touch about this.

It sounds like a web version would suit your team’s needs the best. We’ve just started the private beta for our new web product. It is much faster, has all the latest features and it’s native (no more Flash/Air needed!).

Would you like to be added to our beta testers list?

As an immediate solution, you might want to disable the autosave feature in Mockups 3 for Desktop. This way, your changes will only be committed to your original project file when you manually save them.

Let me know what you think. :slight_smile:


Yes please that sounds fab!

Thanks for the suggestion re. auto save too.
