I need to disable checkin major version option while saving the document into sharepoint. I am able to disable it from Sharepoint UI by overriding Checkin.aspx page but I am unable to control the behaviour when user opens the word document in Office Word from sharepoint and closes the application thereafter (a popup appears saying to checkin version as minor, major or overwrite).
Can I control or override the behaviour of Microsoft Office Word so that I could be able to supress the Checkin Document option from Office Word. Any help in this would be highly appreaciated.
Would you please consider following options:
· Totally disable document library version feature in Versioning Settings
· Prevent version functionality with event receiver(try adding logic in Item-CheckIn Item-CheckedOut related event).
Hope this can help, and correct me if I miss something.
Thanks for the reply, my requirement is that a user can only checkin minor version of an item, however major version checkin (published version) would be done by workflows. So i only need the option to checkin the minor version which I have accomplished from Sharepoint UI, but i am unable to handle it when user opens up word and performs checkin from there. Is there a way, we can override word functionality to achieve this...
Your option will not throw any message to user working on MS word that the item cannot be checked in as Major version. So I cannot use that option.
