Renaming the "CheckinComment" field is not possible, as this is an internal SharePoint field.

  • thanks for the reply. but what do you mean by "Internal SharePoint field"

  • It is a field created for internal use by SharePoint itself. Here is a reference to CheckinComment in Microsoft's documentation: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/… If this answer was helpful, please let the community know by marking this as the answer.

As far as I know, under normal circumstances this field cannot be modified, it is managed by SharePoint directly.
