I am searching for a function to put in a content/Script editor that will just Display what and how many documents the user has to check in.

Google will not help me and i would prefer not to use the build in email reminder.

I want to put the webpart on the right side and just have it "Checked out to you. Doc1 Doc2 Doc3 etc".

Edit and Solution

First of, thank you Jenny and Praveen

I ended up using a non scripted version. I created a view with only -type -Name ( with editing dots).

Since there is "Checked out too" in the system, just not in the view i can filter documents by only displaying if Checked out to and in the textbox [Me] Sharepoint filter view

This was the easiest solution i could think off.

Have you considered non-JavaScript options? There are two out of the box web parts that can display documents checked out to the logged in user.

  1. Relevant Documents Web Part - Use this web part on a site-by-site basis. The web part is typically in the Content Rollup category.

  2. Content Search Web Part (SharePoint 2013 and later): This web part can be configured to show checked out documents across a site collection, or, on a site-by-site basis. Check out this blog for implementation steps: http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/396c42/retrieve-checked-out-documents-from-the-whole-site-collectio/


Use below endpoint

/_api/web/getfolderbyserverrelativeurl('Documents')/files?$select=CheckedOutByUser/Title,Name&$expand=CheckedOutByUser&$filter=((CheckOutType ne 2 ) and(CheckedOutByUser/Title eq 'Praveen Pudi'))
