I have a document library in my SharePoint site. It has structure like this :

  • Year Folder
    • Month Folder
      • Document Set
        • Document

I have applied my filter condition and created a new view for that. Now the problem is even if the folders are empty in that view they are visible. I want to remove these empty folders. How to solve this issue, since its not user friendly.

In the view filter properties, you can select property Folder Child Count and use that as

Folder Child Count > 0
  • I have already tried that.It doesn't work. It counts the folder child for "all documents" view of library, not my view.

In the view filter properties, select property Item Child Count (which means the number of items inside the folder) is greater than 0.
