Project locking
A Productions feature

When working within a Production in Premiere Pro, you can lock a project when editing to prevent unwanted conflicts. Locked projects are available for use in a read-only state for other users, allowing editors to review each other’s work and even copy pieces out of locked projects without needing to request the project owner to release the project.
For more information, see Change project lock status.

Cross-project referencing in a Production
A clip in one project can be reused throughout every other project in the production. This reduces the need for duplicate master clips. Avoiding duplicate master clips has multiple benefits:

You only need to manage master clip properties once.
Individual project file sizes remain small, which helps keep project load and save times fast.
For more information, see How clips work across projects in a production.

Shared project settings in Productions

Project settings include important settings such as scratch disk, GPU renderer, and capture settings. A benefit of having project settings synchronized is shared preview render files. When a sequence is rendered by any editor on the team it automatically shows as rendered for all other editors who open that project ensuring smooth playback for everyone and time savings for the team.
