I created a view in a SharePoint Online library where the Checked Out To field it Not Equal to "blank" meaning I didn't put anything into the field. This does not give me any results. How can I see all documents in a library that are currently checked out?

  • Are you sure that the setting for the files to be checked-out is enabled? – SharePointer Jul 19 '17 at 16:16

You need to have your view show where the Checked Out To field is Not Null. Unfortunately, although totally supported, this isn't an option in the UI. I wrote a post a while back where I did this same filter on the Checked Out To field:


The gist is that you'll need to edit the CAML query of the view directly using SharePoint Designer. Here's how that CAML might look for just that field:

    <FieldRef Name="CheckoutUser"/>

Here's some documentation that may help as well: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ms465807.aspx
