Enable foldering for a project

Before you can start to add folders to your project, you need to enable foldering. Once you have enabled foldering and added the necessary configurations, you can add folder fields, configure the folder field validation form, and test your foldering.

Tip If you disable foldering, the configured settings for foldering are deleted from your project. This means that if you enable foldering at a later time, you have to configure them once again.

You can enable foldering for a project by following these steps:

  1. Open the Project Tree window if it is not already open.
  2. On the Project tab, in the Configuration group, select Project Settings Project Settings icon.
  3. On the General tab, in the Foldering group, select Enable folders.

    Foldering is enabled for your project and the Project Folder Project Tree - Folder icon is added automatically to the bottom of the Project Tree.

  4. Click OK to save your changes and close the Project Settings window.
  5. In the Project Tree, select the newly added Project Folder Project Tree - Folder icon.

    The Folder properties are displayed in the Details window.

  6. Enable or clear the Can contain documents option.

    Clearing this option means that the Project Folder can only contains other folders, and no documents.

  7. Select the Project Folder in the Project Tree and then select Show Script from the shortcut menu.

    The Script window is displayed so you can configure your script.

  8. Optionally, add additional folders and configure their settings.
    Important Each folder can contain only a single folder.
  9. Save the changes to your project.
