Managing Folders

In the Materials section of a group, you can add, edit, or delete folders to improve the organization of items.


To add a folder:

  1. Click the Add Material button. (Note that this is the way to get in and edit folders even if you don’t actually want to add any materials!)
  2. Click Add or Edit Folders. A dialog box will appear.
  3. Enter a name for your new folder and click Add.
  4. Click Close. The folder has now been saved, and you can either continue uploading materials or navigate away from the page without doing anything else.
  5. Note:  A folder will not show up on the main Group Materials page if it is empty. However, when users add materials, it will show up as one of their options in the Select a Folder drop-down menu.


To edit the name of a folder:

  1. Click the Add Material button. (Note that this is the way to get in and edit folders even if you don’t actually want to add any materials!)
  2. Click Add or Edit Folders. A dialog box will appear.
  3. Edit the name of your folder; then click the gray check mark button next to it.
  4. Click Close. The changes have now been saved, and you can either continue uploading materials or navigate away from the page without doing anything else.

To delete a folder:

  1. Click the Add Material button. (Note that this is the way to get in and edit folders even if you don’t actually want to add any materials!)
  2. Click Add or Edit Folders. A dialog box will appear.
  3. Click the red x button next to the folder you want to delete.
  4. A message will come up prompting you to move the items in the folder to another folder. Choose one in the drop-down menu.
  5. Click Confirm and then Close. The folder has now been deleted, and you can either continue uploading materials or navigate away from the page without doing anything else.
  6. Note:  If you want to delete a folder plus all of its contents, delete the individual items first and then delete the folder.
