Document Library- It doesnt have the option to check in when I upload a file. Usually close to the save button there is a check in option and noramlly if any of your column are required, you can't check in without feeling them.

Can I show the Content Type on this window ? so when a user is uploading a file they also can choose on of my custom make content types ? enter image description here


To display Check In in the upload file dialog, you can go to library settings->Versioning settings->select “Yes” for “Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited?”.

To select the Document Type in the dialog, you can go to library settings->Advanced settings->select “Yes” for “Allow management of content types?”->return to library settings page->add your custom content type under Content types section, finally, when you upload the file, there will be a option for content type.

  • Is there a way that when the dialog box open the Contet Type is not has no default ( so it is blank ) bc this will make the users look into the content type option and choose the appropriate one. – Ed1995 May 22 at 8:17
