Check-In a Site Page in SharePoint 2013

This article explains how to check in the Site Pages in SharePoint 2013.


In my previous article we learned how to check out the SharePoint Page, in this article I would like to share the procedure to check-in the site pages in SharePoint.

Need to check-out and check-in

  • In a SharePoint Document Library, you have one way to control the document collaboration by using the “Require Check Out”. Especially when multiple users have access to this library.
  • If you have checked out the file, other users cannot change the file. Other users can edit the documents only when you have checked-in the files.
  • You are also preventing other people from seeing the latest changes or making changes themselves, so it is important that you check files back in promptly.
