How to Create View in Document Library Using Multi Choice Field

Copper Contributor

Hi there,


I want to create a view in my document library that categorizes the "Doc type" choice field by choice. This column is a multi-choice field and when I create the grouping by Business Area-> Doc Type, I get the below groupings via # and string. Not separated out. I read a blog from 2017 that used designer and manipulated the coding to achieve the view; however, I am not a developer and am hoping for a simpler solution. Can you let me know- thank you!

@StephMedicx Multiple selection choice fields are not fully supported from groupings in SharePoint library views.

Also, you cannot use SharePoint designer and customizations on SharePoint online modern experience.


You might need to develop custom solution using SharePoint Framework (SPFx) web parts to show such groupings.
