Folders


Folders allow you to group together related parts for ease of access. You can access the Folders page from the sidebar.

This page displays all folders created within your organization. All users in an organization can view and add their own parts to any folder; however, only the owner of a part can add their part to, or remove their part from, a folder. To add a part owned by another user to one of your own folders, make a copy of the part; you will then own the copy, which you can freely modify.
