Creating a new folder

  1. On the Manage Files page, click on the folder where you want to add a new folder on the folder tree.
  2. Click New Folder.
  3. Enter a new folder name and click Save.

    Note  Avoid using multiple consecutive periods when naming folders. This can create broken links.

Applying content permissions on folders

If your organization enables the enrollment security configuration variable, users with the role permission Access Course Files When Enrollment Security is Enabled can access Manage Files to view and download course files.

If you want to hide specific course files from users, you can store those files in protected folders using folder names that begin with a dot (for example, “.personal_notes”). You can also rename existing folders to protect them. Protected folders are only accessible to users with the See File Listing role permission.

Apply content permissions on folders

Create a folder, or edit an existing folder and add a period at the start of its name (for example, “.personal_notes”).
