The Edit menu lets you edit access settings and tag access settings for the folder. Selecting Publish publishes the folder and any files inside it. The File menu contains the following options:

ScanLink to this section

Scanning a folder syncs the files within the folder with the system database. This includes information about the files such as tags, access settings, etc. If dependency manager is active for the site, a scan also replaces any ordinary links to files on staging with dependency tags. To run a scan, select "Scan" from the File menu and confirm by clicking OK.

It's recommended that no users edit files within a folder while you scan it, to prevent errors or discrepancies.

RenameLink to this section

To rename a folder, select "Rename" from the File menu and type the new file name into the field. Click away or press Enter to save the file name, or hit Esc to cancel.

Because file URLs in OU Campus are created from the file's location in the site structure, renaming a folder changes the published URL of every file within that folder.

MoveLink to this section

Moving folders can be done in several different ways. One way is to select "Move" from the File menu. You can also select the checkbox to the left of the folder name and click "Move" in the table header.

Selecting a folder creates a blue bar at the top of the file list. An orange arrow points to the "Move" option.In either instance, after you click "Move," use the file chooser box to find where you want to move the folder to.

You can also drag-and-drop a folder to move it. Either drag a folder from the file tree in your left-hand sidebar into Pages, or from one location in Pages to another.

Dragging a folder icon from one list of files to another. Available locations are highlighted in green.
Drag a folder from the file tree on the left into its new location in Pages, or vice versa. Available locations are highlighted green.

Moving a folder also moves every file inside the folder. Because file URLs in OU Campus are created from the file's location in the site structure, moving a folder changes the published URL of every file within that folder.

CopyLink to this section

Just like moving a folder, copy a folder by selecting "Copy" from the File menu or by checking the box to the left of the folder name and clicking "Copy" in the blue header bar. Then choose a location for the folder copy to be placed via the file chooser box.

You can also copy a folder via drag-and-drop by pressing Control (PC) or Option (Mac) while dragging a folder to the desired location in the file structure. A green plus sign on your cursor indicates that you are copying a folder, rather than moving it.

DeleteLink to this section

Deleting a folder permanently deletes both the folder and all content inside it, with no way to restore them.

Therefore, we highly recommend recycling any files inside a folder before you delete the folder. Deleting a folder from staging removes it from production as well.

To delete a folder, select "Delete" from the File menu, or check the box to the left of the folder name and click "Delete" in the blue header bar. You must confirm the action by typing "delete" in the field and clicking the "Delete" button.

Managing Multiple FoldersLink to this section

You can select more than one folder at a time by using the checkboxes to the left of the folders. With two or more folders selected, you can move, copy, delete, or publish those folders. Drag and drop also works when multiple folders are selected, but they can only be moved to one location.

To select or deselect all files and folders in the view, click the square in the left-hand corner of the file list.

An orange arrow points to a square icon in the left-hand corner of a toolbar. The square has a checkmark, and all files are highlighted blue.
