Folder

Description

 

Folders are used to organize your entries in a logical way. It is possible to create an extensive hierarchy of folders and sub folders, alphabetically sorted.

 

Folders can be created in two different ways:

 

Via the properties of an entry

From the Add New Entry

 

You can assign a group type to simplify the organization or use variables (for more information, please consult the Variables topic):

 

Document - Folder

Document - Folder

 

Creating Groups via the Entry Settings

 

Groups can be specified in the session properties. Simply fill this field with your desired group name and Remote Desktop Manager will generate the corresponding tree structure. You can use the backslash ( \ ) to create a sub group.

For example, "Office\Canada\Montreal" will create three nodes in the tree:

 

Office

Canada

Montreal

Creating Groups from the Tree View

 

By right clicking the root node of a group or an existing session, a context menu appears allowing you to create a new group.

 

Add group from the session context menu

Add group from the session context menu

 

The "Add Group" dialog box will then prompt you to enter the name of the group, and choose its parent group. Once a group is created you can add a session by using the menu, or by dragging its node directly to the content of the group.

 

Shortcuts

You can display in entry in multiple groups by setting two or more Folders, which are separated by semicolons “;”. You can also use the browse button (…) and select more than one Folder by holding the Ctrl key while clicking on the tree nodes.
