 Automatically checkin files after uploading

In a SharePoint library when you Upload Multiple Files or just document, you can use drag & drop in Explorer View, you can upload multiple files or folder easily. However sometimes the files are kept in “Checked out” mode and will not be available for others until they are checked in. Unfortunately SharePoint doesn’t have a “bulk check-in” function. So how do you have the files automatically checked in?


If you go to the SharePoint Library, Library Tools and select Library, then from the menu select Library Settings, Under General Setting select Versioning settings. Then ensure Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited is set to No


Sharepoint 2013 force check in
Sharepoint 2013 check in all documents
Sharepoint 2013 disable checkout
Sharepoint automatic check out
Sharepoint documents automatically checked out
Sharepoint 2013 auto check in upload
Sharepoint auto check in for multiple upload
The document was uploaded successfully and is checked out to you

SharePoint Automatically Check in Documents

Another setting that could prevent files to be auto checked in is the required columns. Make sure you turn off all mandatory columns, or give them a default value.

Other settings in “Versioning Settings” (such as Content Approval, version numbers etc) do not matter.
