Folder navigation

The widget allows you to categorize into folders app items for which the folder hierarchy option is enabled. By default, the widget is added to the create, view, and edit forms of an app. It is automatically placed on the item page in the upper left corner.


For example, on the form of creating Contract, the user can immediately select the folder where it will be saved.


You can delete a widget, change its settings, or change its location on the form. For example, you can place the widget on the sidebar. To do this, open the app form template in the interface designer. The widget settings are located on three tabs.

Main tab


The Item* and App* fields are filled out automatically according to the app you are working with.


Events and System tabs

These tabs are for system settings that are the same for all the widgets. They allow you to configure a widget’s visibility and access to its data, define what happens, when the user moves or hovers the pointer over the widget, etc. Find out more in System widget settings.

To complete the settings, click Save. To make the changes available to users, click Save and Publish in the top toolbar.
