Setting up version control on a SharePoint Document Library

When you set up a Document Library in SharePoint, by default, versioning of documents is not set up.

Therefore, if you want to be able to check in and check out documents and have them saved with version numbers similar to a source control system like Team Foundation Server, then you need to go into the Document Library Settings and configure versioning.

You can do this by following these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Document Library
  2. Click on the Library tab
  3. On the Library tab, click on Library Settings
  4. Under Library Settings, click on Versioning settings
  5. Specify the versioning scheme that you want to use as well as whether or not documents require a check out before being edited.
  6. Click on OK.
  7. Your versioning scheme should now be in place!
