List Field Document Set Show/Hide Conditional

Hello,

I have been following this guide in an attempt to have my library columns show/hide. I am using a document set structure with documents within each set.

What I am finding is that any conditions that are set do not carry into the document set and any formatting is lost on a refresh, regardless of the document set. Does this feature work on documents within a document set or only at the root level?

Hi @cdn4lf-6738, thank you for posting in the Q&A forum.

Per my test, most supported columns do hide for Document Set content type, such as Single Text fields or Date fields. But the formula does not save on some other types of columns like “Description” fields.

However, it works on all documents within a document set, as long as the column type is supported in conditional show or hide, no matter where the documents are located.

It seems that there have been other restrictions on Document Set content type that are not covered in this document. You may switch to other types of columns and see if you can save the formulas.

@ChelseaWu-MSFT , am I able to set these conditions at the document library level and have them carry over to all document sets within said library, or do I need to reset them for each document set?

The behaviour that you are describing should occur is not the behaviour I currently experience. Nothing in sticking between refreshes for single choice columns, which I assume are not the same as multiple choice columns.

You can set the conditions on any level you want, it will be carried over to all documents/document sets as long as the column is supported.

I have made another test for a random single choice column and the formula can be saved without issue.

Just a reminder, make sure the column is added to all content types in this library.
Also note that Multiple choice columns are not supported in conditional show or hide, referring to the document.

Thank you. I will evidently need to escalate the issue as this is not the behaviour that I am experiencing.
