The files & folders management feature in TOM greatly facilitates the creation of folders required for a systematic filing, as well as the handling of project related files.
|•||The project folder can be opened from anywhere in the project or from the project list, giving quick access to relevant files.|
|•||The project folder is used it as a starting point when selecting files for word/character counting, or when importing TM analysis reports, or when attaching files to an e-mail message. This makes lengthy file searching obsolete. |
|•||The root path for project folders in TOM is set in User Settings: Projects. Client folders are created within the root folder. Project folders are created within a client folder.|
Basic folder creation (fast method for simple projects):
Project folders are usually created while inputting data in a new project. However, it can also be created later from within the single-project view.
Go to User Settings - Projects to activate an option whereby a project folder or even a complete folder structure is created automatically each time a new project is generated.
Folder tree creation
In Project input screen you can create 2-level folder trees with 'Task Folders' that will be automatically created within the project folder.
|•||To do so click the button showing a folder tree (tooltop: Create folder including sub-folders.)|
|•||You can de-activate specific task folders if not needed in order not to let your folder tree get more complex than necessary.|
|•||You have the additional option to create sub-project folders (function in the sub-project window) in each of the selected task folders. By default all task folders are selected for this function. (Again, deactivated task folders will be skipped.) |
