The Document Set Welcome Page is a Web Part page and you can modify it just as you would edit any Web Part page. You can customize the Welcome Page that appears for a Document Set so that it includes information that is useful to the people who will be working on documents within the Document Set. For example, you can display links to reference materials or style guidelines, project deadlines, or other information or data. Each instance of a Document Set created from a Document Set content type will display the same Welcome Page.

Document Set Welcome Page

The Welcome Page for a Document Set includes two Web Parts that are unique to Document Sets. The Document Set Properties Web Part displays property information for the Document Set. The Document Set Contents Web Part displays the files that belong to the Document Set. If you customize the Welcome Page for the Document Set, you will probably want to retain these Web Parts.
