PSIsafe User Guide: Creating and Editing Folders

version 12.1.x   Download Pending



This article is intended for PSIsafe Users.



The basics of PSIsafe folder creation are intuitive and straightforward. Imagine that in most cases, a folder in PSIsafe is meant to represent a real file folder in a physical cabinet. Explanations of the structure of folders and their corresponding index values are covered. Further walkthroughs and interface elements are covered in detail throughout the article.




Folders may be populated by clicking on New and manually entering the index information. Edit the folder by clicking on Edit (on the button bar or right click on the folder.) Populate folders by selecting Tools, on the button bar, and automatically populate the indexes by importing the information from a CSV spreadsheet.




Populating Folder – Importing Indexes using a CSV Spreadsheet

Create cabinet in Management – a CSV spreadsheet has been created and based on the indexes built in the cabinet will populate the folders.

Select Tools>Folder Action> Indexes> Import Folder Indexes:




  1. Select location of excel spreadsheet-check headers if appropriate.
  2. Select Repository, Cabinet, and Folder Sensitivity.
  3. Map PSIsafe indices to the source data fields.
  4. Update existing folder matches.
  5. Start Import.




After import is complete, close out the Folder Import screen, click on the find button in the search folder area to bring in folders.

Folder Pagination


When the folder count exceeds 100 in your active cabinet, Folder Pagination controls appear automatically at the bottom of the Folder Pane, as in the following screenshot:

Folders may also be populated using PSIsafe Synchronizer and Books to populate vendors and customers from QuickBooks using the sync program.
