Rise Course Folder Management

Jun 28, 2019

I have a team account and our dashboard is very full. We have created folders and moved courses to those folders, but the original courses still appear in the dashboard.

Deleting from the dashboard also deletes from the folder.

How can we manage our courses in dashboard and folders ?

Hi, Loretta!

The Shared with me and All courses folders will always display all the courses in those categories even after you sort them into another folder. 

We have a feature request for improvements with Rise 360 folders. I'm going to add your experience to that documentation. We can update you here with any changes!

Yes please! I lead a team of designers that work in Rise lessons for a large curriculum. We struggle when trying to ensure that all Rise lessons associated with a class are in the appropriate folder. Currently, this means either having a list of the lessons or having Rise pulled up in two windows and having to verify them by comparing the All Courses folder to the specific folder to the class. Having traditional folders and the ability to assign a collaborator or author to the entire folder at once would be huge for us.

I would like to tag on that it would be great to be able to create sub folders and to change your default view. Opening up to all courses is annoying if you have hundreds. An example is that I go into a folder to pull up a project. I work on it and then go back to pull the next one from that folder but I am back in all courses and I have to go to access the folder I was just in. It would also be great to have an archive folder for all of our previous projects that are done but you want to be able to access at a later date if needed. Lastly, a search function. Being able to narrow down your search when trying to find a previous project would be extremely helpful.

I have to completely agree with Miranda.  It is overwhelming and messy when you have to see every single module you have worked on staring you in the face.  Working for a large healthcare organization means I have numerous subgroups: clinical nursing, clinical physician, clinical hospital setting, clinical non-hospital setting, regulatory, compliance, non clinical, etc.  Sometimes I have people reach out about very speciic questions regarding a module and a search bar would be most helpful to finding modules quickly as well.  I am looking forward to having you make this modification.

Also add my company to the feature request - we have a growing list of courses and it is becoming difficult to manage without a common view of folders. Having individual views is not as helpful.

Given this thread is now 3 years old, what is the ETA on getting an update addressing this issue? And if no movement, what will it take to prioritize it?

I just posted a very similar request. My team has developed easily 200+ Rise-based assets, since our instructors are such a fan of the straightforward UX when teaching through zoom and subsequently our self-guided materials get built in rise as well since the learners are so familiar with the format. My dashboard is such a mess since I don't know what is or isn't in a folder!

Adding my vote to this request!  It is painful to see every single project I've ever worked on right there on the dashboard after I've put it into a folder. I put things in folders to organize myself, have a separate place to locate old courses, and get them off of a "home" page... but in this case, Rise has simply doubled the number of places where I see my files. Please help!
