Add, edit, or remove Drop Box folders

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

Adding a folder

Your site's Drop Box should contain a folder for each participant. You can add folders to the Drop Box or to an existing folder within the Drop Box. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Next to the Drop Box or existing folder, click Add.

  2. On the Add Item(s) page, from the "Add Item Type" drop-down list, select Empty folder. Select the number of folders to create.

  3. In the "Title" field, type the name of your new folder, and in the "Description" field, type a short description of the folder. If you're creating multiple folders, repeat this step for each of them.

  4. Click Add.

Note: Site participants cannot see Drop Box folders belonging to other participants. Participants are able to see and access only their own Drop Box folders and subfolders.

Editing a folder

You can edit a Drop Box or folder within a Drop Box. Next to the title of the Drop Box or existing folder, click Edit properties. On the Edit Folder page, you can modify the folder's title and description. When you're finished, click Update.

Removing a folder

You can remove a folder within a Drop Box. Mark the checkbox next to the title of the existing folder, click Remove Checked, and then confirm the removal by clicking Remove.
