Standard SharePoint content management tools require users to manually check in every uploaded file in document, form or picture library, otherwise leaving it checked-out. If you want to сheck in or check out number of files, or approve them, the procedure will be extremely time-consuming.
Virto Bulk Check In fixes this shortcoming allowing SharePoint users to bulk check in/out groups of documents with just few clicks, and automatically check in newly uploaded files, and thus save tremendous amount of time in some cases.
With Virto Bulk Check In you can, first, check in at one time a large group of previously uploaded and currently checked-out documents, and, second, approve them (sometime when you set up a SharePoint list or library, you can require approval of the items or files) . In the latter case you can decide whether the files are checked in as published or draft versions.
