Create new folders to categorize forms create-new-folders-to-categorize-forms

You can organize your assets better using folders. Since AEM Forms supports several types of assets—form templates, PDFs, documents, resources, and adaptive forms, with various metadata—you can use folders to categorize your forms based on the desired criteria.

AEM Forms lets you change the title of a folder. The title is not the same as the name of the node under which the folder is stored in the repository. Rather, the title is maintained as metadata for the folder. If you change the title of a folder, the path of any asset present inside the folder is not affected.

Create a folder create-a-folder

You can create a folder in AEM Forms in one of the following ways:

  1. Log in to the AEM Forms user interface at https://<server>:<port>/aem/forms.html.

  2. Navigate to the location under which you want to create a folder.

  3. Click the aem6forms_add icon in the toolbar and then select Create Folder.

  4. Enter the following details:

    • Title: Display name for the folder
    • Name: (Mandatory) The node name under which you want to store the folder in the repository
    note note
    By default, the value of name field is automatically populated from the title. The name can only contain alphanumeric characters, or the hyphen (-) and underscore (_) special characters. Any other special characters entered in the title are automatically replaced with a hyphen and you are prompted to confirm the new name. You can choose to continue with suggested name or edit it further.
  5. Click Submit.

    A new folder with the title you defined is displayed at the current location in the asset listing.

    If a folder exists with the name specified, the submission fails with an error. You can view the error message by hovering over the error aem6forms_error_alert icon that appears beside the name field.

Edit the folder title edit-the-folder-title-br

  2. Click the edit aem6forms_edit icon in the toolbar.
  3. Enter the new title. The text field is prepopulated with the current value of folder title. You can change it to a new value.
  4. Click Submit.
