Create a folder in the web environment

Before creating your folder in your organization’s Inkit web environment, make sure you are signed in to a user with the folders.create permission.

If you are signed in to an admin user, you have all permissions granted by default. Otherwise, you must create a new user role and give it the appropriate permission.

Let's continue, follow along by performing the next steps:

  1. Click on the Render -> Folders tab
  2. Press the Create Folder button
  1. Fill in the folder creation form with a name and description

Give your folder a clear, indicative name. For example, name a folder ‘Invoices_US’ instead of ‘BillingAmerica.’ The clearer you organize your data, the easier it is for your team to use the Inkit platform.

  1. (Optional) Click the ‘private’ checkbox if you want customized data access

Note: You cannot turn a private folder into a public folder. But you can edit which roles have access to your folder after you create it. Before creating a private folder, you may wish to identify with whom you want to share the folder.

  1. Confirm by pressing ‘create’

You have now successfully created a folder.

Tip: the Inkit platform aims to give you versatile data access customizability through folders. Do not only create public folders. Use private folders and folder sharing to hide confidential information.
