    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.
