In a project, there are five kinds of folders, as shown in the figure below:

  • Schedules
  • Locations
  • Applications
  • Devices
  • Channels


By default, the initial structure contains the Schedules, Locations, Applications, Channels, and Devices primary pages, but this structure can be manually adjusted if needed. You can remove the options if the available ones are not relevant to your project.
