From here things may look a little different. The existing categories that live on this page are now organized into 5 pre-created folders listed in the same order as before.

Customizing & Organizing

Admins can also "Edit Folder Name". To do this, simply click on the ellipses button and select the option from the dropdown. A dialog box will appear allowing you to make your changes. Hit "Save" when complete. Screenshot 2023-04-26 at 11.58.38 AM

When you hover the mouse over a folder, notice a grid icon appears to the left of the folder name. Click and hold down on the grip to rearrange the order of your folders

📌 Note: You can use this grip icon to drag and drop Documents in and out of Document Folders too! 

Click on the arrow next to each folder to expand your folder to reveal Documents and Subfolders.

(Psst... Since GoCo will not let you reorganize the order of your Subfolders, simply place numbers in front of each subfolder name in your desired order!)
