Folders are the objects that are used to contain File archives. Each folder can contain files and sub-folders. The files in a folder relate directly to those stored in a local directory, but are not constrained to the hierarchical directory structure found on disks. For example, a sub-folder of a folder can point to a local drive, a remote drive, or a completely different directory.

notes The folder structure in Team Coherence may or may not equate directly to a physical directory structure.  

For example, consider the situation where you have several development projects with a single customer. In this case, you may decide to make the Project the Customer, with each separate development project a separate root folder under this main project. Within each root-folder, you may decide to add folders specific to the different areas of the development project. This might lead to a structure similar to the following:


The folder structure you use in Team Coherence is completely up to you. Modifications can be made to the structure at any time using simple Cut & Paste, Drag-Drop and the Folder Property Sheet.

Folders can also be defined as Web Folders. Web folders allow you to quickly publish the latest version of a folder, and the objects it contains, to a live web server using ftp. Web folders can be defined by users that have Access rights to the folder in question. For more information on Web Folders, see the topic Deploying Folders.

As well as containing sub-folders, Folders are used to contain the File Objects themselves.
