Checking in multiple files using SharePoint Designer

If multiple files have been checked out and you want to check them quickly (in SharePoint document libraries), it  can be easily achieved in few quick steps using SharePoint Designer 2007 (rather than using the inbuilt check-in feature), here are the steps:

  • Open the site in SharePoint Designer 2007 
  • Select the document library, locate the files you want to check in, in the document library
  • In the ‘Folder List’ on the left-hand pane, select the files (using windows standard – shift or Ctrl) you wish to check in. They’ll have a check mark next to them.
  • Right Click and choose "Check In" or "Undo Check Out"

This is much simpler than the cumbersome MOSS / WSS inbuilt capabilities…
