Create a Document Set Content Type

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconWithin an organization you often create different kinds of documents when working on projects. With a document set you can have such documents organized in one single view. If you plan to use folders for such documents we recommend you to study document sets first, because in many ways that is a better option.

When you create a new item in a library that uses a document set, you will have the specified set of documents created automatically. Their names will be the name of the item + the name of the template. The responsible users can just open and edit them.
