Creating a Folder in the Tree Structure

The purpose of this article is to explain how to create a folder in the tree structure.

Kairnial's powerful Documents module provides robust and sophisticated document management and archiving for all of your mission-critical project documentation, such as drawings, specifications, bid packages, checklists, reports, etc.

To use the Documents module, you need to define a project folder structure to store and manage the files you need.


To create folders in the Web Application you need to have the correct permissions.
Reach out to your Kairnial Administrator for more information.

Next, click the + icon:

Next, click the Rights tab. Roles & Groups will be displayed and you can then set the permissions:


The available options are:

No permission (both icons are greyed out) No_permission.png
View only (the eye icon is NOT greyed out) Read_only.png
Edit (both icons are NOT greyed out) Edit_permission.png
