I set up a document library in a new subsite. Using SP2010 RTM, SQL 2008, on Server 2008.
Created 6 site members and 3 site owners. Library is using Major versions, everyone can see all documents. Set the library up using Enterprise metadata as a required field and enterprise search terms not required. Tested uploading a document or two
and all seemed ok. Opened the library to the users so they could upload documents for the project.
After two weeks there are 27 documents in the library but I only see 3. Another user, a Member, sees 6. Most of these document have the Check-out icon. To see all documents I must go into Library settings and "Manage documents with no checked-in
version". When I try to take control sometimes I can and then check-in the document but other times there is a warning about "duplicate values in meta-data field". The Meta-data field allows only one value not multiples according to library
I would rather not take control and check-in all documents as that creates teh first version and loses the author.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
Why are documents checked-out when uploaded by users?
Why can't users see all documents in library whether they are checked-out or not?
Thanks folks for your time.
