I have a WSS site and a document library. The issue is that my client wants the users to have Add capability but not Edit capability. "Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited?" is selected. When a user submits a document they get an access denied error, the document in is the "Checked out documents" section though. It would appear that the Check in process is part of the Edit permissions. Is there a way I can use an event receiver On Adding to change the Checked in property to true?
I have been hearing conflicting results and I would rather not get four hours in only to find out that in fact you can't do this.
