Workaround: Version comments not saved in SharePoint 2013

Today I found a workaround for the bug I reported a few weeks ago: “Version comments not saved in SharePoint 2013“.

When you have one content type available in the library the version comments cannot be saved when you upload a new file. If you have more than one content type available the version comments can be saved in SharePoint.

Steps to add a content type to the library

  1. Go to the “Library Settings”
  2. Click on “Advanced settings”
  3. Change “Allow management of content types” to: “Yes” and save the settings.

  4. On the “Library Settings” page click on Add from existing site content types.

  5. Add a content type to the library e.g. ‘Basic page’ and save it again.
  6. Now try again to upload the file. Select a file. Fill in the version comments and click on OK.
  7. Click on “Save”
  8. Now when you view the library you will see the version comments you entered at step 6.
