When you upload multiple documents into a Document Library with versioning turned on, is it a SharePoint 2007 default to keep the documents checked out? For some reason, when multiple documents are uploaded to a document library it doesn't give it a version and keeps the documents checked out to the user that uploaded them. The way it's working is no one can see any of the documents given there is no inital version. The only one that can see the documents is the person who uploaded them. When I looked, I noticed they were checked out to the user that uploaded them. I would think it should function pretty much the same as uploading a single document, where it prompts you for the initial check in after it's uploaded.
If this is a setup issue, is there a way to automatically have the multiple documents uploaded checked in after they are uploaded? Or, is this normal behavior and the users will have to remember to check in the multiple documents after they are uploaded?
Thanks in advance, Robert
