Traditional Folders

You can create traditional folders in M-Files. These folders do not have the additional properties provided by views. Traditional folders are comparable to, for example, folders on your C: drive and can be used for importing files to M-Files. Traditional folders allow you to retain the original folder structure of the imported files. See also Transferring Folders to M-Files by Using the Import Files and Folders Dialog.

Creating a New Traditional Folder

  1. In M-Files Desktop, press Alt to display the menu bar and select Create > Traditional Folder from the menu.
  2. Optional: Right-click the traditional folder that you have just created and select Rename to rename the folder.
A new traditional folder is created and added in the Traditional Folders view. You can use the folder for importing files and folders to M-Files.
