New Document option missing in Modern Document Library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I couldn't find an option to create new document in Modern Document Library. Only Folder and Link option are visible under New Tab. 

    I can upload files but couldn't create new document inside the library.

  • Hello Jeff,

    What you are seeing is the default behavior and is expected. After registering your Farm with an OOS server, the drop down will be extended with the ability to add documents.

    Example:

    Before OOS

     

    After OOS:

  • Do you have OOS configured?

  • I don't have and I have the same problem. OOS is a pre requisite for that feature ?

  • Yes, Once OOS is configured, you should see the options as given below:

    Office Documents

    Please note that we have a known issue with creating Word Document were it fails creating a word file with an error, but Excel, PPT, Onenote should work fine. RTM should have a fix for the word file creation issue.
