  • Folders, previously known as Units in Classic View, are a great way for instructors to organize their content by class or module in a private manner. Instructors can also share folders with their colleagues for quick and easy transfer of content.

    Copy folders from Classic View

    Before you can copy your folders, you must copy all of your bulbs over from Classic View. Once you've done so, you should:

    1. Click on the Folders icon in the left sidebar
    2. Click Copy Classic Units
    3. Make sure to activate the bulbs you have copied over from Classic View before assigning them to your learners!

    The units that you had in Classic View should now appear as folders in PlayPosit 3.0, and the bulbs that you had placed within units should appear now in their folder counterparts. 

    Note: Subfolders can no longer contain nested subfolders. If you had a nested subfolder in Classic, we have recreated them as subfolders within the same parent folder.

    Create a folder

    1. Click on the Folders icon in the left sidebar
    2. Click Add Folder
    3. Name your folder
      1. (Optional) - Choose a Folder Color.
      2. (Optional) - If you're creating a subfolder, you can select the parent folder from the dropdown menu titled Create Folder In.

    Editing/Deleting a folder

    1. Click the triple dots icon to the right of the folder you want to modify.
    2. Select Edit to bring up a dialog that will let you modify the name and color of the folder, as well as move it into an existing folder.
    3. Select Delete to delete the folder - this will not delete the bulbs contained in the folder.

    Copying a folder

    1. Click the triple dots icon to the right of the folder you want to copy and select Copy.
    2. Name your new copied folder and click Copy. The new folder copy will be made with the same color as the original folder, and will be placed at the same level of folder hierarchy as the original folder (e.g. a subfolder will be copied as another subfolder within a parent folder).

    Add bulbs to folders

    1. Click the triple dots icon next to the bulb you want to place in a folder and select Manage Folders
    2. Select Add to Folder for the folder you want to manage
      1. (Optional) If you want to add a bulb to a subfolder, you can click the dropdown arrow to the left of the folder's name.

    Share folders with colleagues

    To share folders of bulbs with colleagues so that they can copy all of the contained bulbs:

    1. Click the triple dots icon to the right of the folder you want to share and select Share.
    2. Copy the URL and share it with your colleagues. They will be asked to log in and confirm whether or not they want to copy the folder.
