I have searched and searched but have not found a solution anywhere. My problem is that we have a number of document libraries that require check out for editing and have mandatory fields. When users upload multiple documents the documents are kept checked
out until a value is assigned to the field and the document is checked in. The issue is, that users may not complete the process and subsequently no other users can see the document.
We tried indexing the 'Checked out to' field and allowing for users to search based on this. However, this does not display documents with no checked in version and as such does not help...
Is there some way that we can make the search indexer crawl these documents or have a web part that lists documents checked out to the logged in user? We are using SharePoint Foundation 2010 which may make this more difficult.
