I feel like I should explain this really cool idea that I had. Basically to quickly check-in and check-out documents in Sharepoint. I’ll show you with MSword. First thing to do is fire up Word. You’ll notice that in the upper left hand corner near the Office Menu, a quick menu bar. See below.
Drop down the arrow to right of the bar and you’ll see an option to add “More Commands”. From this new window that pops up, go to the drop down “Choose command from” and select “All Commands”.
From here find Check-In and Check-Out and add them. (I’m adding version history too!). You can even add keyboard shortcuts from here too. Once you’ve completed, click OK. You’ll see your quick access bar updated.
