Document Library Inside Document Set View


  • Hi

    I have placed a document library webpart inside a Document set. I want the Document Webpart view to be filtered based on a column value called release. But i need this to be different for each and every Document Set.

    For example I create a document set called BR13-1. Within this Document set I added a webpart document library. I only want to show documents that are Br13-1 release realted. Now this view will filter to every other document set created.

    So now if i want to create a document set called Br13-2, the document library webpart should filter to only show documents that are BR13-2 related and so on.

    In a nutshell different filtered view for the document library web part for each and every document set.

    Hope this makes sense.

  • Hi,

    You can try to use text filter web part to achieve this.

    You can add a text filter in your document sets, then use some codes to set the value of the filter web part dynamically. Now connect the filter to the document library web part.

  • Can you explain how this is done?

    Or point me to a URL that explains this procedure. Im not familiar with text fiters.

  • Is there a way in the view to create a filter. But use a Function. For example modify the view and then under filters..only display when the following is true.

    Release Column = [Document Set Name]

    Because the name of the document set exactly what needs to be filtered. So if the name is BR13-1 then the filter should only filter and show all documents that are BR13-1.
