Have you ever logged into an online email account only to discover your inbox cluttered with dozens of messages in a handful of different topics? Sometimes, our members will discover the same thing in their accounts when it comes to audio and video recordings they’ve made.
That’s when the real question is proposed: How do we cut the clutter?
In today’s posting, we will show our readers how to create folders in their AudioAcrobat account, how to move files to these folders and how the folder information can be managed from anywhere in the world.
First Things First
Folders are a great way to separate content based on the criteria of our readers’ choice, but creating too many folders will cause just as much clutter as having not created any in the first place … there is a delicate balance to the process. This balance comes from first envisioning what types of content will be recorded/uploaded to our member’s accounts.
Simply stated, folders work best when they’re not too general and not too specific. If our readers find themselves placing too few or too many files inside of a specific folder, slight changes may need to take place in the form of re-titling a folder or creating one or more new folders to lighten the load.
Having said that, let’s create a folder in the Audio section!
1. Login to your AudioAcrobat account
2. Click the blue ‘Audio’ tab
3. Click ‘Create New Foler’
Login to your AudioAcrobat account
Click the blue “Audio” tab
Click ‘Create New Folder’
Here, our readers will be asked to give the new folder a title (required) and description (optional). When satisfied with the entered information, click “Save Changes“.
Hint: This information can be edited at any time by placing a check in the box left of the folder and by choosing “Edit Selected Folder” from the “Select an Action” drop-down menu.
After saving the new folder, our readers should see it appear at the top of their list of audio files/folders like this:
Movin’ On Up
Like the Jeffersons, our readers should be feeling pretty good right about now, and if they’d like to start taking advantage of the new folder they’ve just created, they can move one or more audios to this folder by placing a check in the box left of the desired audio(s) and selecting “Move Selected Audios to Folder” from the “Select an Action” drop-down menu as pictured below.
Select the desired folder using the “Move to Folder” drop-down menu and confirm the action by clicking “Move Audios”
Hint: Folders work exactly the same in the Video section … try it for yourself!
There you have it — Organizing your library with folders in 500 word or less!
