Folders Within Folders

For all content options that allow you to organize with folders, it would be extremely helpful to be able to create folders within folders for better organization leading to less duplicates and efficiency when looking for content already created my a teammate.

Hi Community,

 

We are continuing to follow this thread and the increases in requests in recent weeks. At this time there are no immediate plans to develop this Idea, but that is not to say that this idea will not be developed. The ability to add folders within folder, while seemingly a quick fix, will require some broader changes to how our sales content library is built. We will be considering multiple potential changes to organization and layout in sales content library before we update this issue to "Being Reviewed".

Hi Community

 

Per my previous comment, we are hopig to review and plan this issue in the near future, but this is not planned for development in the next quarter. For transparency and clarity, I am updating this issue to 'Not currently planned' for the time being. I will update here once we have plans in place.

 

Best,

Glen

Hi Community! 

 

I'd like to provide an update on this idea, as it has not gone unnoticed!

 

We have recently been focused on developing other features in sequences related mostly to new functions when building and enrolling contacts into sequences. However, we are planning this year to shift a focus to the management and administration of sequences, enrollments, and user permissions. We plan to make this shift some time in Q3 of this year.

 

Adding folders within folders is a logical next step for the organization of a large team's sales content. Furthermore, it is something that you can already do within Marketing Hub content. As we begin to review "Folders Within Folders" specifically, I will update this idea post with our progress. Thank you all for your feedback!

 

Best,

Glen

We should be able to create folders within folders for email templates. It would create better labeling and organization for us. At the moment, this is not available which creates a lot of folders in the main template interface.

I have brought this idea forward a few times when speaking with support.  It would be extemely effective in organizing templates and media files.  The more content that gets added into the system, the more difficult it is to find what you are looking for.


In addition to this, when selecting a template to use, right now you can search for a template through all the templates you have.  If there was an (optional) folder field that would allow you to drill down the folder and respective sub-folder, so the templates list is only propigating the templates contained there - that would just make finding things worlds easier.

Similar to the above, having folders within folders for media that could be collected into sub-folders and searched in a similar fashion would make finding media files sooo much easier.

Hi Community,

 

We are developing an app called CloudFiles that enhances HubSpot Documents. In doing so, it solves this problem, among many others. CloudFiles can be used to upload and share files through trackable links right from HubSpot

 

CloudFiles provides the "Cloud Copy" feature that mirrors all the files uploaded into a cloud storage of your choice (e.g. if your company uses Google Drive or HubSpot's native storage). This mirror has a default file organization that is neat and can be accessed by anyone in the company.  Thus, it removes the HubSpot Documents' flat folder structure from the picture and solves this issue.

 

We are actively developing this app so any key feature requests would be swiftly taken up.

 

You can try out the app from HubSpot Marketplace.

 

 

Thanks

Yes we are currently setting up our templates across 3 jurisdictions with multiple teams. 1-level folder organization just doesn't cut it. Is it possible to add at least 2 levels so we can organize first by country, then by team.

As someone who works in a global sales structure, having nested folders would be absolutely amazing! Even being able to split up our automations by region would be a start, as at the moment everything has to sit in one folder. Similarly, if Sales people are assigned certain lists, I want them to live in their individual folders rather than a team-wide one. Having third party integrations to do this work really won't cut it, and I want to minimise that if possible.

@ACallcott  it's possible to partion workflows in Sales Enterprise and Marketing Enterprise. it's in beta stage. 

 

Not sure about lists but yes would be great to follow at least a 3 layer folder structure for lists as well as templates

@DinDjarin oh interesting, we're on Sales Enterprise but not in the beta for it, is there a way for us to get access to that?
