Go to site actions -> Manage content and structure. At the first page there is a list of the files with a "view" in the toolbar on the right section. Drop this down and choose "Checked out to me". This will list all the files, you can then check the checkbox to select all items and in the actions drop down choose check in.

When you click Check In button, method handleCommand called from javascript object SP.Ribbon.PageState.PageStateHandler (sp.ribbon.js) with commandId = "PageStateGroupCheckin" If you debug it, you can find that it executes this line at least: return SP.Ribbon.PageState.Handlers.showStateChangeDialog(properties['CommandValueId'], ...

SharePoint document libraries III: Work with version history at the office website says no. The first link is for SharePoint 2007 where it's easy to find, but if you want it confirmed for SharePoint 2010 then it's also mentioned in the description for the selection "Keep the following number of major versions" in Enable and configure versioning for a ...

This is default behavior and I don't think there is a way to prompt user on closing. There are simply no options to send information back to Sharepoint that document is closed. The only option would be to integrate some custom logic into the application responsible for document handling, but I think it is not worthwhile. UPDATE Since there are most likely ...

You can use SharePoint Designer to navigate to the site / Document library. Select all files that need checking in and select Check-in from the Edit menu. Alternatively use PowerShell as described in this post.

You can also use the Manage Content and Structure feature if you have the publishing feature turned on.

Have you actually tried it yet? Log in as a normal user. Edit a page. Save it, but don't check it in. Log in as an admin, check the page in. See if the changes the user made are there. My suspicions tell me that they will be there, as an administrator can always see the most recent version of a document, major or minor. The only thing is that the 'last ...

For SP2010 you can find it as below Site Actions -> Content and structure -> Change View (Checked Out to Me) -> Select all files using checkbox and click on Actions Menu. There's option to checkin. Thanks, Ashish Chotalia

That is just the way it is in my experience when the library is set to not require check out, which is the default. Even if check out is not required, you can check any document out to put a file lock on it so others can't make changes while you have it. Try toggling the library option to require check out and see if that makes any difference.

The answer provided by SharePoint Dude only applies to files with no checked in version. It's accessible through the Library Settings page in the browser UI. But James Love and Ashish Patel are right - as an admin, if you find a file and choose 'check in' the user's changes will be preserved. (Tested using SP 2010.) Sharepoint asks you to confirm if you ...

There is an out of the box way of doing this - Navigate to /_layouts/ManageCheckedOutFiles.aspx?List=ListGUID and take ownership for the Checked out files and check in

Answer to your question yes it will fire ItemCheckedIn event, if inside Versioning settings link->The Require Check Out radio is selected. Some more information: ItemCheckedIn fires 1. once we add document, automatic checking will happen, which will fire ItemCheckedIn. 2. Next when we explicitly call ItemCheckedIn. following sequence you may notice in ...

Check-in/ Check-out is only available for document libraries. The physical check in/out process is done on the SPFile (document) and not the list item. List items can be tracked using versioning. sharepoint does not allow entry of values concurrently, meaning if you are modyfying list item 1 and user 2 also trys to do it, only after user 1 changes are ...

Follow the steps... Check out the word document in SharePoint. Open the document in MS-Word for editing. Modify the document and go to File TAB. There you will find "Check In" & "Discard Check Out" buttons.

I had write down the script to get the checkout file by user name here is the script : function Get-CheckedOutFiles() { [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.Sharepoint") $webapp = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplication]::Lookup("http://moss") foreach ($site in $webapp.Sites) { Write-Host "Processing Site: ...

Installing the latest service pack resolved the issue!

This could be a client issues. Try the following if the SP does not work. Run the Microsoft Office Diagnostic Tool, which is part you the Office installation on a client. This will look for and correct any errors in your Office installation. When the diagnostic tool is finished try to check out and edit a document. The David Klein's blog entry for ...

Documents checked out to the Local drafts folder (this is the default) are stored in the "My Documents\SharePoint Drafts" folder

In addition to what James said. You may want to test out this scenario. You are editing a document, someone else downloads the document instead of opening it straight from SharePoint makes changes and then uploads back up. I havent tried this specifically but it could in theory overwrite what you were working on. If we are talking Office 2010 and ...

Having a 'checked out' flag is useful when you have another application that will use or otherwise look at the document library. Also, that popup you get when someone's locked the file for editing? That's MS Office specific. You can't do this with text files. If you want to lock down any format that's not office to prevent save conflicts, you gotta use ...

YOU SHOULD NOT MODIFY A CONTENT DATABASE USING SQL Even reading from the content databases is not considered good practice, you may cause locks which will cause SharePoint to fail. The moment you change anything in a SharePoint database (except the usage ones) your SharePoint installation becomes unsupported. Loop through the pages/files using PowerShell ...

Are you checking in the file from Excel or from SharePoint? Try an IISReset. Do you have SharePoint plugin installed on your installation of Office? All Programs -> Office -> Change -> Office Tools/Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Support. Also, do you have the plugins necessary in IE to perform Checkout? They may be disabled. IE -> Tools -> Internet ...

You would need to enable versioning & content approval, via List/Library Settings. As soon as that is done you see in the bottom 2 more options: To decide Draft visibility - make sure you choose the one stating "Only users who can Approve items (and the author of the item)" !!!ONLY on Document Libraries!! - Option "Require Documents to be checked out ...


2

What you want sounds exactly like what you get if you check "Yes" for "Require content approval for submitted items" on the library. There's a help link right next to the option in the "Versioning Settings" page.

From the description it looks like you are having trouble with the document properties when you try to check in the document. This may be caused by a change in the Content Type and/or Site Column related to the document. Most likely a required field was added, or a field was changed to be required which wasn't before. It's not unusual to have these issues ...

Go to the Document library. Select Library tab from the ribbon. Check if individual checkboxes are present in each row. If not, click on Modify View in the ribbon and check "Allow individual item checkboxes" in Tabular View section and click on OK. Now Select the check box next to the file icon for each file you want to check in, check out, or discard. ...


2

You can do so by selecing all documents (clicking on the left of each one), then from the ribbon in the "Files" tab, click "check in".

I think you need to specify what type of CheckIn you're doing. Such as Item.File.CheckIn("Checked in programatically!", SPCheckinType.MajorCheckIn);

We had an almost identical problem with the documents and the solution was to have the user clear out their IE cache Under Internet Options -> Browsing History. (I had them clear everything.) Then the user had to start Disk Cleanup and checked off Temporary Internet Files and deleted them as well. This cleared up the save issue and locking as well. Hope this ...

I don't believe it is possible using the ListData.svc. But you can do it using the Managed Client Side Object Model. I'm not on my dev system right now but I will add a code sample tomorrow. Edit: Just to be certain I attempted to check in a document in my dev server's Shared Documents library using ListData.svc. I attempted to do it by sending a DELETE ...
