Create a Folder

To organize assets, you can create folders in the ASSETS section of Contentstack. You can maintain your assets in a nested folder structure, which means you can create folders within folders, going up to the depth of five levels.

To create an asset folder, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the steps given below. If you're already on the asset page, skip to step 2.

  1. Go to your stack, and click on ASSETS on the header.
  2. Click on the Create folder icon at the top right side of the Assets page.

  4. Click on Create. You will see a new folder named Project as the first item on the Assets page.

  6. To start adding assets into the folder, click on the New Asset button either on the center or at the top right-hand side corner of the page and upload your assets.
