How to create folders using the File Explorer

Sometimes your users might have documents that don’t fit into their current organizational scheme. They’ll have to create a new folder.

Going to whatever cloud storage service of their choice, creating a new folder, and then going back to your app is certainly an option, but it’s a painful one. 😦 Why put your users through that?

Create a smoother user experience and increase the time your users spend in your app by using folder creation. Folder creation is available when you implement the File Explorer. Your app’s users can now select new locations in their cloud storage when your app prompts them to choose a folder.

 

Here’s what that experience looks like for your end users. First, they’ll click on the folder icon to create a new folder:

Create New Folder One

 

Then they’ll see this screen:

They just need to fill out the form field with the name of the folder what they’d like to use. I chose “Folder Rename Demo” (very exciting, I know!):

Clicking save creates and saves the folder within their desired cloud storage service:

There you have it — a perfectly pristine folder that your users can create from within your app. You can learn more about the file explorer here or try a demo.
