SharePoint Bulk Check In and Approve allows multiple checking in at one time a large group of previously uploaded and currently checked-out documents, and, second, approving them (sometime when you set up a SharePoint list or a 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. SharePoint multiple documents check-in feature compatible with SharePoint 2013, 2010 and 2007.
Standard SharePoint content management tools require users to check-in manually every uploaded file and document, form or picture library, otherwise leaving it checked-out. If you want to сheck in or check out multiple files, or approve them, the procedure will be extremely time-consuming.
SharePoint Bulk Check In and Approve feature 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.
