I'm creating a custom field type and use JSLink for rendering this field in forms. Unfortunately, when I try to create a new Document Set, my .js file is not attached to the page and field rendering does not work.

How to make JSLink work for NewDocSet.aspx page? Any ideas?

The NewDocSet.aspx page is application page in _layouts folder, you can’t custom through UI/designer. So you cannot use JSLink to render the NewDocSet.aspx.

As a workaround, you should go to the folder which is located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS in SharePoint server and make a copy of the NewDocSet.aspx page, then add JavaScript into the page to render the form.

  • Or work your script into the MasterPage and trigger it on the NewDocSet page, that way you won't have to go into the Layouts folder (which is not even possible in SharePoint Online) Jan 21, 2016 at 13:55
