Upload multiple files loads them checked-out RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using PS2010.  When we upload multiple files at once to a document library, the files are all checked out and we have to check them in.  We'd like to have them upload checked-in.  Is there a way to configure the system to this behavior?

  • Hi Walter,

    That behaviour occurs when you have the document library 'Require Check Out' option set in the Versioning settings. When you first upload, the document will be checked out to you, until you check them in manually.

    If you deactivate this option, you will not have to check in, but you will also stop forcing users from needing to check out before editing. On a side note, there is a statement in the online help that may assist in your OneNote issues:

    Important : Do not configure your site library to require checkout if people plan to co-author documents in the library. People cannot work simultaneously on documents when required check-out is in effect.

    If this is turned on, it may be the cause of your problems.

    Hope this helps,
