Managing folders

This topic provides information about adding, editing, and deleting folders.

Using folders

TrueSight Capacity Optimization provides a simple, intuitive, and customizable folder system that allows you to classify all the analysesmodels, and reports that you create.

For each domain, there is a root folder called Works in which you can create your own folder structure, with all the nested levels you need. Folders can be private or public.

Tip

A private folder is only visible to its owner, while a public folder is visible to all the users with access to the domain.

By default, when a new domain is created and does not contain any analyses, you will find the link to the Works folder in the Using the Tools and Links bar. After the creation of the first item (folder, analysis, model, or standard report) the link will appear in the navigation panel.
