is it possible to use DFFS for Document sets? I try it but without success. It is possible to add frontend CEWP to Disp/Edit/NewForm but link to UI configuration page is missing. When I open UI configuration via url link – It was possible to save configuration but rules doesnot work.

I have not tested it with document sets (and I have no experience with document sets either). Do you have the solution set up and working in another list or library to ensure you have the setup correctly?

Yes your solution works perfect in list or document library.
Document set seems it has same structure (DispForm, EditForm.aspx..), it is possible to add webparts to page, but it does not work.

Hi Alexander, we encountered the same Problem
We would like to use dffs with document sets – without success so far.
document sets behave somewhat like folders in a document library, but with added metadata.
DFFS Setup works, we can configure the tabs, but they are not displayed.
Dffs works great on same website with a standard document library
I’m using Dynamic Forms for SharePoint DFFS Backend v4.360|CSS version: 4.10 / |spjs-utility version: 1.257
Thanks for looking into this – Dirk

I have tested now and its only a matter of changing the folder detection function in DFFS to not include the document set content type. I’ll add support for this in the upcoming production release of v4.365.

Hi Alexander, great this works in Beta4 in general.
One issue occurs when you create a new document set. Instead of NewForm.aspx, the file /_layouts/15/NewDocSet.aspx is called, and DFFS Reports “DFFS functionality will not be applied because you are attempting to load a non-existing list item (missing ID in the URL).”

I’ll look into it late tonight.

i want to use dffs within the NewDosSet.aspx.
Should this still work with the current version on SharePoint2016 ?
The Installer only recognizes the disp and the edit form. How could i config the newdocset.aspx?

Sorry, but the only way I was able to get this working was using the old JSLink installation method. I’m not sure this will work on SP 2016, but you can try it out.
The JSLink setup file is not part of the current version so you will have to start by download an older version and get the “Setup.html” file from that package. Add it to your current DFFS folder and see the attached setup instructions how to set up the JSLink DFFS Loader column.
Please note: This is not supposed to replace your installation method for the rest of the lists, it is only for use in the document library where you use document sets.
Let me know how this works out.
