Support Document Sets in Modern libraries
Enable support for Document Sets in Modern SharePoint libraries.
Document sets are a very useful alternative to folders and are used in sophisticated document management scenarios. The lack of support for these in Modern libraries forces us to retain Classic libraries in many cases
Would love to be able to bulk check out and check back in - inside doc sets and libraries - are currently having to revert back to Classic SharePoint - how long will Classic SharePoint be an option and when will bulk check in and out be available in Modern libraries and Doc sets
Are there any updates regarding this? I am needing to use document sets in my current libraries
I have to make a decision for my Company in the next week. It would be great to get an update on this so I can make an educated decision.

Hello, we must make a decision very quickly on the use of docsets on a project that requires modern experience. What can we expect in terms of delays?
Many thanks for adding this feature to your roadmap. On the roadmap, I can see that the feature should be released during Q1 2019. Could you provide a preciser target date, as Q1 is already finished?
I thank you in advance for your return.
This is now on roadmap Feature ID: 33761

Just to clarify, Document Sets are already supported within modern libraries, there just isn't a modern experience INSIDE the Document Sets
We heavily use document sets, so this would be great. We're trying to start moving everything to modern and this would be a big inconsistency.

Hello Microsoft Developers, we would have great interest in a file preview for SP online which also works for Document Sets. We are working on a project for file storage which includes email communication and other communication. File Preview is very important to be able to scroll quickly through document sets and find the right document among many similar docs. It is essential for us to work with document sets as a guiding principle, therefore we need the file preview within document sets. Regards, Andreas Birkenmayer, Deere & Company
