You can enable simple or automatic check-in of documents in each integrated Microsoft Office application as necessary, by configuring certain strings in the registry for each application. Simple check-in replaces the standard ProjectWise Check In dialog (that opens when you close a checked out document) with a simple Yes/No confirmation dialog that prompts you to check in the document. Automatic check-in checks in the document silently (no dialogs open) when you close the checked out document.
To enable simple or automatic check-in of documents in integrated Microsoft Office applications, you can create the following registry strings for each application: SimpleDialog and ShowConfirmation.
Set both SimpleDialog and ShowConfirmation to True to enable simple check-in. When simple check-in is enabled and you close a checked out document, the standard ProjectWise Check In dialog is replaced with a simple confirmation dialog that prompts you, "Check in closed document?” You can then click Yes or No.
Set SimpleDialog to True and set ShowConfirmation to False to enable automatic check-in. When automatic check-in is enabled and you close a checked out document, the document is automatically checked in without any prompting.
Example: To enable simple check-in for Microsoft Word (2007)
Example: To enable automatic check-in for Microsoft Word (2007)
To find the location in the registry where the strings should exist for each application, look in the ProjectWise Explorer help file under Troubleshooting>iDesktop Integration Notes>Microsoft Office Integration.
