KM Room creation and access

At this point I have two questions:

1) Within the documents folder (I access it through a "Col Navigation iview") I have "Checkout " tab available for the document that I upload along with Checkin and cancel checkin. But within the new folder I created in CM repository and access it through a KM Navigation iview the checkout feature is missing. The other two are there. How can I get the other check out tab there.

2) I am able to create rooms and when I enter room I see creating tasks and deadlines and all project management stuff there. Can we do project management by creating the room and assigning tasks and deadlines. How can I create an iview and enter into room through an iview and link that iview to that room. I can access the room folders using the KM navigation iview but not the actual room where I can do task management etc. Do we assign permissions through the room(assigning owner, lead, project manager etc) or through the iview.

Thanks a lot for helping me learn room and collaboration.
