what is the real purpose of check in check out actions on SharePoint ?

Jump to solution

Many talks about how to do check-in Checkout for a document, and how to override these actions.

 

In my company some ppl doing check in check out as a religious practice whiteout understanding why and when I ask I don't get the point why ppl check-in-out and when they really need to have this feature.

 

Please help me understand or give me an example for a case scenario that Check-in-out is vital?

How this could be rich input or trigger for a workflow?

take it as a lock on file.

when you check the document out, only are allowed to upload updates/new versions.

until you check it in again nobody else can change it.

 

if you do not use check in/outs and multiple people may work on the document, you risk that they will overwrite their changes/updates mutually.
