Can I Move a Document Set and It's Contents

by RobertMartin » Thu Mar 26, 2015 7:04 pm

It isn't 100% clear to me from the use case if I can move a Document Set and all of it's contents from one library to another with the actions pack in O365. Is this possible?

Hello Robert,
Because Document Set content type is inherited from folder, you can use Copy Folder from library, but there is one nuance - the result will have a folder content type. Please see example below:

Additionally you can use "Update List Item at Any Site" to change content type and required properties in destination item.

Also I would like to offer you to buy our support hours, we can add this feature to the product. To know more please write us to sales@plumsail.com.

I was able to create the folder and update the Content Type and required properties. However, when viewing the folder, it does not use the document set welcome page. How do we fix that?

Hello Robert,

Also you need to setup property "HTML_x0020_File_x0020_Type" to "Sharepoint.DocumentSet"
