Check in and checked out documents in SharePoint?
The check-in/check-out feature is one of the key features of SharePoint document libraries.
By default, required check-in and check-out is disabled in SharePoint.
- Go to library settings àversioning settings
- Required documents to be checked out before they can be editedà choose “yes” and click “Ok”
When a user has a document checked out, changes the user makes are not visible to anyone until the document is checked in. Means when a file is checked out to you, you are the only one allowed making changes to it. The file will remain locked (checked-out) until you release it.
Site administrators with correct privileges can discard the checked-out lock made by a user.
Minimum “Designer” level permissions required to override check out others checked out documents.
Note: If the System Account is the account that has the item checked out, users are no longer available to check in the item or discard the check out from the library’s views, even with the Override Check Out permission.
How to make document changes Offline:
When try to check out a document, SharePoint prompts you to save the document in your Local folder.
