Modern Document Sets Moving and Copying
Now that the Modern document set is released we need the ability to move and copy these to other libraries and or collections. Document sets are an ECM function and used mostly for solution building and not having the ability to move them for archiving purposes makes them an unfinished solution.
I find an alternative. You first copy/move your DS in a folder and then you copy/move the folder in the destination library. From this library you copy/move the DS where you want and you delete the folder.
Three steps but it works.
Maybe with Power Autmate it is possible to copy/move in one step. Let us know if you succeed.

For some reason the MoveTo and CopyTo buttons only work in the current library, when selecting Document Sets. It should be possible to select other libraries as well.
We need the functionality to move/copy document sets from one library to another.
I agree wholeheartedly, users should be able to move and copy document sets across libraries and site collections. The New Form for the Document Set should also be modernized.

I support this due to the 5000 limit.
Agreed, the ability to easily move or copy a document set should be basic functionality. Some of the same/main reasons to use a flat architecture, to provide ease of mobility as things progress and change.
