You can unlock up to 4 parties in Touken Ranbu.

It is important to note that your first party is the party that other players will challenge in Practice. Also note that only parties numbered 2-4 can be sent on Expeditions.

Locking and Unlocking your Swords enables it so that it doesn't appear in certain menus.

For example, if you don't want to accidentally use a certain sword to refine another, lock it and it will prevent it from appearing as a material to refine with. (You can still refine it with other swords though!)

Equipment Screen

When you go to equip a solider unit, make sure to select it first to get the red button to equip it.
