Folders are a great way to keep your Workflows and Pages organized and can also be used to manage permissions for different teams of users or different departments in your organization.
For example, each team in your organization (eg, HR, sales, finance, etc) can have their Workflows in a separate folder, giving them access to only the processes or Pages that they need to see.
This increases productivity and security, as no one has access to Workflows or Workflow runs that they do not need to see.
Users: In order to create folders, you must be an Administrator in your organization. Admins and Members with ‘edit’ permission can manage folders, once they have been created.
To create a new folder, click the “+ New” button in the top right corner of your library and select “Folder“.
Give your folder a name, select the location of the new folder, and click “Create” to finish.
In the example above we’ve created a folder on the organization library and you’ll see that the organization name is highlighted.
Note: We do not support adding the / symbol in folder names as of now. If added, it will make your folder inaccessible.
If you’d like your new folder to be added to an existing folder, you can select the location from the list shown below.
If you already have sub-folders, click the main folder’s name or click the down arrow to expand all your options.
Select the location of the new sub-folder, and click “Create” to finish.
To access a folder’s settings from your library, click the cog on the right of your view to open the menu.
You can also click a folder’s name to open it, and then click the cog at the top of your screen to access settings from there.
To rename a folder, access the folder settings and select “Rename” from the menu.
By default, this opens on the “Properties” tab. Here you can type in the new name for your folder, then click “Update” to save your changes.
Pro Tip: Since folders (and Workflows) are displayed in alphabetical order by default, you can rename them or prefix them with numbers, to help show them in the order you prefer.
To delete a folder you need to be an Admin or the person who created the folder.
You can delete folders from the properties area shown above, or from your library; click the cog next to your folder’s name and select “Delete” from the dropdown.
Note: You can only delete empty folders. If you have Workflows in there, you would need to move or delete them first, and then delete the folder.
You can move one folder to another location in your library, by clicking the cog next to your folder’s name, and selecting “Move“. Select on the location you’d like to move this folder into and click “Move” to finish.
Note: You cannot move folders between different organizations, only Workflows.
To manage the users assigned to a folder, access the folder settings and select “Share” from the menu.
Invite a new user by typing their email address and selecting the user type under “Invite as“. Click “Invite” to grant them permission on your folder.
Invite a Group by typing the group name, or an existing user by typing their name or email address, then click “Invite” to grant them permission on your folder.
You can change the permissions of an existing user or group by clicking the dropdown shown below to select a different permission level.
Guests (Internal) can be given “edit” or “view” permissions, while you have 4 options Members, as shown above.
Learn more about the options for setting user permissions.
Remove a user or group from the folder entirely (click the remove user icon to the right of their entry to unassign them from that folder).
Once you have created folders, you can move your Workflows into them.
Access the Workflow settings next to your Workflow’s name and click on “Move“.
Next, you can choose the folder location you want to move your Workflow into. Make your selection and click “Move” to finish.
You can also store Pages in folders.
When viewing your published Page, click the three dots shown below and select “Move“.
Next, you can choose the folder location you’d like to move your page into. Make your selection and click “Move” to finish.
