Allow Version History Comments Without Check-out
When a document is checked in, I can enter a comment that shows up in the document's version history. I would like to add these comments to version history without checking out the document. For example, designating which version of a document was sent to someone else or marking a good restore point for a document that is modified frequently.
I'd add three votes if they'd let me. I check out documents just so I can add a comment, but I can't expect my colleagues to do the same. I have problems with people who create multiple copies of files rather than rely on auto-versioning because they don't trust it or don't understand it.
This would be extremely beneficial for me as I would be able to easily identify which version was sent to Accounting as the Final submission as just one example of it's use.
