Hopefully this will be a short one. I did not see an answered question like this.
- I have a document set that is tied to a site content type which has a parent of Document Set. I get all of my columns from this.
- I have a document library that uses the site content type (again, a Document Set) as it's content type and nothing else.
- Inside the Document Sets are simple "Document" content types.
- I have gone to Document Set settings and selected all of these columns to be Shared columns.
When I create a new document set the metadata from that is not being applied downward to the documents in the document set.
My understanding is that this should be synchronized by a timer job in the background.
Does my Sharepoint Online environment have an issue or do I not understand how Shared columns work? I've looked at every tutorial I can find and haven't found a straight answer. Does this only work for "Default" documents in the library?
