Posted on 2014-02-04

I am using office 365 SharePoint online. I want to create a workflow that checks the item in and run this with the item changed event. I can't seem to see how to do this in designer. Do I need to create a VS solution? i think my workflow needs to check to see if the item isn't already checked in before it does it's auto checkin. Can someone point me in the right direction?

We would want the checkin if the file itself is modified. Metadata cannot be counted on to be modified, only created by, modified on etc....will automatically be modified. So what event do i hook to tell my workflow the file of the item in the doc lib has changed? Also, if by some strange chance the file is already checked in, what would the workflow checkin do?

The WF wont do anything if it's checked in, just terminate.

When you add the WF to the library check the box "Start this workflow when an item is changed".

So I don't even need the conditional? It would be a one line workflow to simply check it in if it has been changed?

The condition allows it to avoid items that are already checked in, so that's worthwhile.
