Use folders to organize team projects


Do you have a lot of projects in your team workspace? Are you and your team looking for ways to better organize your projects?

If so, try creating a folder!

Folders are the perfect way to organize your projects and they will sync to all your team members’ accounts, meaning that the way your folders and projects are organized will appear the same to your whole team.

Note

When organizing personal projects, use sub-projects to break down larger projects.

  2. Click + Add in the right-hand side.
  3. Select Folder.
  4. Enter a name for your folder.
  5. (Optional) Open the dropdown menu under Include projects to add projects to your folder (you can also add projects to your folder after it has been created).
  6. Click Add.
