Hey,

I have a team site, the Modern UI is enabled and I have enabled the standard content approval in Sharepoint Online for a document library. Also, major and minor versions get created and users have to check out documents before editing.

 

When checking in, users write a check-in comment and can then submit the document as either a minor or major version. If they make a major version at check-in and the document is approved, the check-in comment is also the comment of the major version in the version history. So far, no problem for this scenario.

 

However, if users check in a document as a minor version and then manually submit for approval, their check-in comment will be discarded or deleted from the version history. The comment field remains empty even after approval.

 

Can anyone reproduce this issue or know a solution?

 

Version history when a document was checked in as minor version:

_sebastianson_0-1649839007791.png

 

Version history of the same document after manual submit for approval:

_sebastianson_1-1649839096866.png

Same problem here. Did you find any solution for this?

@astapel Unfortunately, still no solution found.
