You see only the first level of grouping in a document library that uses the SharePoint Online new experience


Consider the following scenario:
  • You're using the new experience for a SharePoint Online document library.
  • You've configured Group By columns for the document library, and you're using more than one level of grouping.
In this scenario, only the first level of grouping is displayed when you browse to the library.


To work around this issue, use classic view for document libraries where more than one level of grouping is needed. For more information about how to switch to classic view, see Switch the default experience for lists or document libraries from new or classic.


This issue occurs when you use the new experience for document libraries. Group By columns with more than one level of grouping are supported only in classic view.
