The Power of Folders in Waymaker.io

Our new folder functionality allows you to create a structured and efficient workspace, leading to a more organized working environment. Now, every user in your organization can view, create, edit, and delete folders, ensuring that everyone can contribute to and benefit from a well-organized content system.

Why Folders?

In the digital age, efficient content management is key to organizational success. Folders in Waymaker.io are not just placeholders; they’re a way to custom-organize your playbooks, task boards, scorecards, and data rooms. This means you can tailor your workspace to fit your organizational needs and enhance your team’s productivity.

Module-Specific, Organization-Wide

Folders are specific to each module—whether it’s Playbooks, Tasks, Scorecards, or the Data Library—but they’re shared across the entire organization. This shared structure allows all users to view and interact with the same organization system, ensuring consistency and clarity across the board.

For instance, an admin might set up a Playbook folder structure that includes categories like Executive, Finance, Sales & Marketing, Support, and Development Operations. This structured approach can differ in other modules, such as Data Rooms, where folders might be organized by tool or data source, like HubSpot, Azure, or Spreadsheets.

Creating and Managing Folders

Creating a folder is straightforward. Simply navigate to the module you wish to organize, click the “+ Folder” button, and name your folder. To populate the folder, go to the edit function of an item and assign it to the folder. Remember, a folder’s visibility is dependent on its contents; it will only be visible if it contains at least one item.

User Permissions and Visibility

Waymaker.io ensures that folder visibility is aligned with user permissions. If a user sees an empty folder, it indicates they don’t have access to its contents. However, they can add accessible items to any visible folder.

Editing and Deleting Folders

Editing a folder’s name is just a click away with the ‘Edit’ function. If you need to delete a folder, the ‘Delete’ function prompts you for confirmation, after which the contents of the deleted folder are moved to the default folder, ensuring no loss of information.
