I am a regular (non-privileged) user of my company's SharePoint Foundation 2010 system. When a document is checked out, I know how to find out who it is checked out to (hover over green checkout arrow). But I also want to know how long ago the document was checked out. Where can I find this information?

There is a property CheckedOutDate but I'm afraid it is not available anywhere in the User Interface.

As a regular user, I don't think you will be able to find it.

If you can ask an admin or someone else with access, they can find out for you using a small code snippet.


$item = $web.lists[...].items[...]
$checkedOutDate= $item.File.CheckedOutDate.ToString()

    I want to accept this as an answer but I can't since my question was migrated here, and I don't show up as the poster even though I have linked the two site profiles. So, my apologies, have flagged to see if this can be fixed.

  • @KAE No Worries! Follow the instructions from this meta post and contact the SE staff directly. This is out of scope for moderators unfortunately. Your accounts are linked, but they have different display names and/or username. I don't know if that might be the problem?!

  • Not sure if it was because I changed to a consistent display name, or because SE directly changed it, but now I can accept the answer. Should I delete these comments?
