Creating Folders

A user with an Administrator or Designer role can create folders.



Users that log on with a Designer role will have their own personal folder created and displayed on the Workbooks page (e.g., ~designer).

The personal folders:

·         are displayed and can be accessed for users with an Administrator or Designer role

·         are where Designers can create workbooks and build dashboards. For more information, refer to Altair Panopticon Web Authoring Guide on how to create workbooks on the Web client.



1.     On the Workbooks tab, right-click on the topmost folder, and select New Folder.



·         Only Administrators are allowed to change the permissions on the root folder.         



The Create Folder dialog displays.



·         Everyone is available in the Allowed section by default.

·         Removing the Everyone group will mean that the folder and its subfolders will not be available for public access.

·         The default group permissions on the root folder are WRITE + READ.



2.     Enter a Folder Name.

3.     Proceed to defining the Authorization to Allowed or Denied groups and users.

4.     Click .

The new folder is displayed on the expanded Folder hierarchy list and on the Root Folder list.



·         Folders and subfolders can be deleted as long as they do not contain published workbooks.

·         The folders and subfolders on the Workbooks tab will also be available on the Extracts and Webhooks  tabs.
