Using SharePoint 2010 , I currently have a web part to show me a list of all documents checked out by [ME] (current user).

However, there are no select boxes available for those, so I cannot check in from this same web part.

How can I create a "check in all files checked out by me in this SharePoint instance" - it should work across all document libraries in this instance.


  • Do you have to check-in all checked out documents or you have to create a web part that can help you with that? – Anand Sep 1 '16 at 13:06
  • I would like a button or link on the front page that says "check in all files checked out by me" - the user already has a webpart showing them the list of files, now we need the action to check them all in at the same time accross multiple document libraries and folders. – Shackrock Sep 1 '16 at 13:07

You can use the default Check-In for all files that checked out to you without coding by doing the following :

  • Create a view in your document library with following columns.

enter image description here

  • at Filter with Checked Out To equal [Me]

enter image description here

  • At this view > select all files from the above checkbox at the Doc header, > from the above ribbon at Items Tab > select check-in to check in all files that checked out to you.

enter image description here


To show all files within the document library that check out to [Me] Whether these files in folders and subfolders , do the following

  • Modify your custom view.
  • At Folders Section > Check Show all items without folders

enter image description here

  • I am fairly certain that this will only work for the folder I'm in, not recursively in folders beneath it, can you confirm? – Shackrock Sep 3 '16 at 15:05
