New Folder Page (Report Manager)

Use the New Folder page to create a new folder in the report server folder hierarchy. The folder that you create is a virtual folder that is stored in a report server database. The folder is not created in the file system of your computer.

A folder is created in-place, as a subfolder of the folder that is currently selected. Before creating a folder, you should navigate to the location where you want to create the folder.

After you create a folder, you can modify its name and description through the General properties page of the folder.

Use the following procedure to navigate to this location in the user interface (UI).

To open the New Folder page

  1. Open Report Manager, and navigate to the folder in which you want to create a new folder.

  2. In the toolbar, click New Folder.


Specify the name of the folder. A name must contain at least one alphanumeric character. It can also include spaces and certain symbols. Do not use the characters ; ? : @ & = + , $ / * < > | " or / when specifying a name.


Type a description of folder contents. This description appears in the Contents page to users who have permission to access the folder.
