Document sets in modern document libraries
Document Sets in modern document libraries
We are hard at work on this capability now. We’ll release it early next year.
Jose Luis Arias commented
Document Sets feature in modern library was meant to be released on April 2019, it was a couple of weeks later with some bugs though.
Now, I think Microsoft is still working hard on this feature but people may notice this feature is done in some tenants (older ones first) while still pending in others.
For instance, in my tenant Document Sets were available yesterday but I cannot set custom metadata when creating a document set. I can only set a Name, then I have to edit the created Document Set to set custom metadata.

Glad to be seeing this is now available in my tenant.
Can we get an update on where this release has gone?
Hi is there any updates on this??
I already use Document Sets, but there is still the classic UI.
Although today I discovered that my users are not able to change the name of a set, but they do have contribute rights.
I am so desperately waiting for the modern version to be ready!
Martin Mostögl commented
Is it planned to have something similar to the classic document set homepage?

The announcement is now in the message center:
We’re updating Document Sets. We'll begin rolling this feature out in May to Targeted Release tenants.
Some more information please! The date you stated for delivering modern document sets has past....
Troubling that in a separate SharePoint discussion thread it is saying May roll-out date. But no update on here since 2018.
Link to the other discussion,

Doc sets have received no love for a decade now, even though its the core technology to go out of obsolete folder structure to a modern document management where users can start a full process, have tags and templates ready. how much longer MS needs to bring this to life?
I am also waiting for this critical update, can you please share the status or at least update the Road-map ?
Hi, I am waiting to roll Document Sets out to our team. I can't until we have the new interface so not to change twice in quick succession. Can you update us please so I can manage the process?
Just hoping for the Monday morning email with an update isn't very helpful when you are trying to plan!
What is happening with this one?
It still says release is Q1 2019, even though the item in the roadmap was last modified 5th April 2019.
When can we expect this to be released?
Hello Admin? The roadmap status shows this still in Development which usually indicates it's months away from being completely launched.
O365 Roadmap says this was to be released March 2019, and I'm still not seeing it yet. Any updates?
Please add it ASAP, really need it for a project we're rolling out.
When you said early this year.... was that 2019 or 2020?
I would like to add to this please? I am implementing document sets in a modern site and it feels like a step backwards!!!
Microsoft 365 Roadmap indicates March 2019 for modern document sets. Fingers crossed this isn’t delayed:

When can we expect this to be available? Thank you.
Is this release confirmed towards Q2?
