Automatically check out/in document on open/close

Is it possible to enable automatic check out when a document is opened in Citix Files and automatically check it in again when the document is closed?

I am working on a service that uses ShareFile with Citrix Files. Checking in and out documents is a great tool to make sure only one user has write access at a time. However, the users of the service have no previous experience with ShareFile and will have to learn to manually check out the document every time they want to edit it. A much better user experience would be to automatically check out a document when it is opened and automatically check it in again on close. 

I have seen several other users on this forum who would like the same feature (https://community.sharefilesupport.com/citrixsharefile/topics/file-locking-in-sharefile) but have never seen any indication of this being implemented yet or whether you are planning to do so in the future.

I replied to the thread referenced in this original post, hopefully with the new and improved platform of Citrix Files, this can EASILY be accomplished.
