Copy the Document Folder Structure from Another Project

As a project editor, you can create folders for a new project by copying them from an existing project by going to Projects > Documents > Import Folder Structure. The copy button is labeled Import in Viewpoint Team™.

You can only copy folders from a project that you are a project editor on. All folders from the project are copied to the current project. The documents, history, and security are not copied.

You can only copy folders from another project, if no folders have been created.

  1. From the home page, under Projects, select the name of the project you want to open.
    Alternatively, go to the main menu in the upper left-hand corner, select Projects, and then select the name of the project you want to open.
    The Dashboard for the project appears.
  2. Select the Documents tab.
  3. Click Import Folder Structure.
    The Import Folder Structure window appears.
  4. In the Available Projects field, select the project from which to copy folders.
    The number of folders on the selected project and the folder structure appear.
  5. Click Import.
  6. When the import is complete, click Close.
The folders are now available on the current project.
You need to set folder security on the imported folders. See Folder Access and Security for details.
