One of our users did a bulk drag and drop of many files while we had version control turned on. Now they are all checked out. Is there a way to check them all in at once? We don't need any comments on these documents.

  • Can you clarify which version of SharePoint this is for? E.g., SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013?

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".


There are some solutions in this other question: How do I check in a LOT of files all at once?

You have options:

  • User interface
  • Powr Shell
  • SharePoint Designer
  • Other Tools

Hope it will be helpfull

  • I probably should have mentioned there were many folders and sub-folders. When I click on the Folders the "Check-in" is greyed out. I ended up taking ownership and then selecting all files in each folder and checking them in.
