    Hi



    I have a bit of an odd question which might result in some scolding. I am not a developer, I'm comfortable with Powershell and some C#. I have a pwoershell script that unlocks documents within SharePoint 2013. I know SP13 has the auto unlock after 10 minutes, but the script I run on some files, I can see the doc being locked for hours some times next day.

    I was going to initially create a workflow with Bamboo Workflow conductor since it had a built in Powershell module, but we are moving away from that application.

    The script works nicely but I'm essentially the only one that can run it (SP Admin). I wanted to look into making a WSP solution I could deploy to the farm and have it show up in the ellipsis (…) in every doc library.



    My question is not to "give me the code for it" I want to be able to build this for my self. So far I've seen quite a few TechNet articles about it, but I wondered if there are any recommended books on the subject, hopefully a decent beginners guide.
