Creating a New Folder

Create a new folder


Folders are used as a storage mechanism in document management.


Folders should be created in such a way that they are easy for users to browse when trying to locate documents. The main goal of using folders is to categorize documents and create a logical structure so that documents can be easily found and retrieved at a later stage.


Folders should be similar to the file structured used in an organization to store paper-based documents.
