Edit Property from Checked out Document

Is there a way to Update file properties from documents in SharePoint online which are checked out by another user?

@anonPU, I'm sorry Flow has the same restrictions that regular SharePoint would in this case.  As far as I know only the user who checked it out could update the file props while its checked out.  So no, you cannot update properties while its checked out by another user already.

Hello @anonPU ,

the flow would have to follow the same process as when you want to update checked out file manually:

  • Discard check out (it'll discard all changes and restore the last checked in version of the file)
  • Check out file
  • Update file
  • Check in file

Power Automate has dedicated actions for all of it.
