I know that there are some answers out there to show an admin all of the checked out files by a user... i.e. these two links:



However, what if I want the ability to be given to all users. So that a standard user can come onto the site, click a button or link, and be directed to a page that lists all files that they have checked out. Is there an easy way to implement this?

In 2010, use the OOTB web part "Relevant Documents." Look for it within the web part Category "Content Rollup."

When you edit a Relevant Documents web part properties, you will find the following options under "Data":

  1. Include documents last modified by me
  2. Include documents created by me
  3. Include documents checked out to me

If you choose the third option, the web part will display all documents checked out to the currently logged in user from within that sub web.

Note the limitation on documents that reside within the current web, not the entire site collection.

  • this works great, but I can't "select all" to check in everything. It just shows me a list. Any ideas to take it the extra step?

  • That's another matter, @Shackrock. To my knowledge, there is no way to enable bulk checkins by end users from within that web part (OOTB).

Create the view filtered on "Checked out to" = [Me] should work
