Working with Work Areas and Folders

The Documents root folder is the top level folder in any datasource. All folders and work areas are created under the Documents root folder.

  • A folder is primarily a tool for organizing documents. In addition to documents, folders can contain document sets, other folders, or even work areas.
  • A work area is a special type of folder. Work areas can contain everything a folder can contain. In addition, work areas can contain saved searches, a component index, links to other sources of data, and so on. Work areas are intended to complement your existing project management software, by providing a single place to manage and organize documents, data, and resources related to a given real-world project.
