Has anyone come across this before?

I have a basic document library for which I have enabled "Allow management of content types" and disabled "Launch forms in a dialog".  Both of these settings are in the "Advanced Settings" page.  Also, the document library does not have versioning enabled and check out is not required.

I added the OOTB "Document Set" content type to this document library and allowed OOTB "Document" content type documents in this document set.  This document set does not have any default content.

The issue arises after I upload multiple files and click the "Done" button.  After I do this, the browser redirects to the top level of the site!  For example, if I uploaded to my document set at http://server/sites/anyname/doclib, I am redirected to http://server/.

This issue has come up in both a standard server and an enterprise server.

Steps to repeat issue:

  1. Create a document set
  2. Open the document set
  3. Select "Upload Multiple Documents"
  4. Drag and drop or browse for files
  5. Click "OK"
  6. Click "Done"

Actually, this issue also occurs when "Launch forms in a dialog" is enabled.  In this case, you just have to navigate to the upload form directly (with all the necessary query string parameters, of course).

Has anyone else seen this issue?  Does anyone know of a workaround without having "Launch forms in a dialog" enabled?

Any help would be appreciated.

We are facing exact same issue as described above. 

Have you solved this problem yet? Any workarounds?

Hi Harry,

I get this behavior too, when I disable the form dialog setting as you described.

I've seen this in three different Farms for different clients, so I'm venturing that this is a bug and not related to your content type or version settings.
