Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited is "NO" in SharePoint 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited is "NO" for a form library in SharePoint 2007 but I can see "Check Out" option in menu for a form and form has been checked out to user. 

    Anyone please let me know why the form has been checked out to user when I selected "NO" for "Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited" under versioning settings.

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    Even with the Checkout set to 'NO' you will get the option to check out the file and checkout the file.

    The purpose of this feature is to only allow one user at a time to modify the document who will be prompted to checkout the file before editing the file. At the same time no one else will be able to edit the file.

    For further explanation please refer following article:

    Check out, check in, or discard changes to files in a library

    Hope this helps :)

  • Hi,

    Can we do this setting no programmatically using CSOM code? If yes, How to do it?

    Thanks.
