I have a document library in a modern SharePoint on which I use custom formatting to customize the tiles view. The library contains leaning material for the users in different languages.

The document library is embedded on our Site Collection's main page. I want the users, when they arrive on the main page, to be able to filter the included document library by language.

Currently I can include the document library with the tiles view on the main page. But using the tiles view there is no possibility for users to set a filter. The filter is only available when I use the list view. When I go to the document library there is a filter icon which I can click on to filter the tiles view.

Is there a possibility for users to filter the tiles view on the main page?

As a workaround, you could add a Highlighted content web part in the site collection main page to filter documents.

Reference: Use the Highlighted content web part

  • Yes. But then I filter the content and I need the users to apply the filter relevant to them.
