Bulk creation of folders is useful in cases where you want to create multiple folders on per group basis.

Each folder will be:

  • named after the group, and
  • have the permission assigned to that group.

Bulk create folders does not create folders based on facilitators.


Access Files

In your module, click Files under Tools on the left sidebar.

Click Bulk Create Folders

Click Bulk Create Folders on the right sidebar.

Select groups for which folders should be created

Select the groups and/or individuals for which folders should be created. In the example below, we want to create folders for Sub-groups 1 to 3.

To ensure the right groups are selected, click (not check) the parent folders, then check the groups for which you want to create the folders.

Select facilitators permissions

Select the facilitators. This assigns the permissions for the facilitators to each of the bulk-created group folders.

This does not, unlike what the interface seems to suggest, create folders for the facilitators with the respective permissions.

Select other folder settings

  1. Choose the Folders Open date and time.

  2. Choose the Folders Close date and time.

  3. Choose the default sort order via the Sort Files By drop-down list.
