Moving Files and Folders

Moving files and folders with the File Manager

The File Manager makes it easy for you to reorganize existing files and folders within your digital workplace. When moving files, you require at least Edit level access to the file and at least write access to the location where you want to move it.

Note: When moving files, the access rules effecting it can change. This is often caused by inherited access rules differing between the file or folder's old location and new location. Access rules can only be checked using the normal browser experience, however, you can quickly navigate to the desired locations from the File Manager by right-clicking the object and selecting "Open in browser".
