Adding Folders (Locally)

About Adding Folders (Locally)

Local Folders

  • Folders added to your project locally will not exist on the server until you have chosen to upload them.

  • If no folder is selected, the folder will be added to the root level of the project.

  • If a folder is selected, the new folder will be added inside the selected folder.

Methods to upload data

There are a few ways to add folders to your project, but two common ways are by clicking Add Folder button or through the context menu.

Troubleshooting Errors

Common Errors

  • The most common error is caused by the folder name. Folder names must be unique. If you attempt to create a folder with the same name, an error will show and not allow you to create the folder.

  • You do not have permissions to create a folder inside the selected folder.

  • The folder name you have chosen contains a character that is not allowed.
    See Naming Conventions for details.
