How To...

Forced SharePoint Check-In from ReplaceMagic

In some case you might have some documents that are in checked-out state. This means that no other users can make changes in those documents. SharePoint allows users belonging to Site Admin group to do force check-in and ReplaceMagic, if user has correct role, can do that for you. Important is that once when we check-in document this document will be again available for all users. Of course, if some user is currently working on document and we force check-in he/she might lose changes so be careful with this setting.

To enable ReplaceMagic to do force check-in go to configuration of SharePoint parameters for ReplaceMagic. Configuration can be found under Configuration button which is in main ReplaceMagic form:

ReplaceMagic Configuration

When Configuration form is opened go to SharePoint Configuration tab:

SharePoint configuration for ReplaceMagic

SharePoint Check-in/Check-out setting is controlled over parameter "Enforce check-in?". By setting this parameter ReplaceMagic will forcefully check-in checked-out documents.
