Check-Out a Site Page in SharePoint

In this article I would like to share the procedure to check out the site pages in SharePoint

Need for 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 over write the file. Other users can edit the documents only when you 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.
The following is the procedure to check out the site pages.

Step 1

Go to the page in your site, the page you want to check out, as in the following:

share point page

Step 2

Select the “PAGE” tab on your SharePoint Page as shown below:
