Can we check out multiple documents? Every EDMS I have used will let you check out multiple documents.
I am missing something?

Did you mean to say checkout multiple files on the document ? Yes you can check out multiple files on document. When you click on checkout button in eB web it will open the checkout wizard and you need to select the files that you want it to be checked out to the specific location as shown in the below screenshot.
Thanks for your comment, but unfortunately I want to check out MULTIPLE DOCUMENTS.
(Like I said, every other EDMS will check out multiple documents).
Any plans to make this possible?
This functionality is not available right now but we have raised Enhancement (#ID 1009327) request for same.
I agree with Scott, this would be a useful feature. The included SDK suggests that checkout / in is available as part of the API. If Bentley can give an example (as its not clear from the supplied documentation) of this (C# ideally) then it should be straightforward to build a plugin to provide this functionality.
Can you please provide an example of checking out and in a file using just the API.
I am perplexed by the fact that there is a "Bulk Document Updates" > "Cancel Checkouts" feature, but not a "Check Out/In". It seems like low hanging fruit to pluck.
Let us know how Enhancement #1009327 is progressing.
