I have set Metadata Navigation in a SharePoint site (Classic Experience).

It works well in all document libraries, it works when I open a Folder in these document libraries but it disappears when I open a document set present in these document libraries.

Is it possible to enable Metadata Navigation in document sets?

Thanks in advance.

It is by default that metadata navigation cannot be used in a Document Set.

  • thanks for your answer, but now I wonder why: in Folder it works and Document Set derives from Folder, like their IDs show: 0x0120 -> 0x0120D520 , can you explain me why? Is there a technical motivation (such as, for example, for the List View Threshold)? Commented Mar 5, 2020 at 12:56
