Files and folder(s)

When you click a folder from the Folders area in the My bots page, the contents of the folder are displayed in the Files and Folders area.

When Version Control is enabled, the version related columns are displayed. If production version is set for a file, the information displayed in the rest of the columns, such as size is for that version.

The columns of the Files and folders table are described in the following table.

Item Description
Type The type of file- Folder or TaskBot. This is based on the type of the file in the folder.
Name The name of the folder or file.
Size The size of the file.
Client last modified
  • The date on which the file was last modified on the Bot Creator machine before it was uploaded to the Control Room.
  • If version control is enabled and the Production Version is set, the date is the one when that particular production version was last modified before it was uploaded to the Control Room.
Last Modified The date and time when the file was last updated.
Modified by Name of the user who last modified the file or folder.

You can perform the following actions on a column to help you work efficiently.

  • Click a column to sort it in ascending and descending order. You can sort up to three columns by holding the Shift key when you click two more columns. This gives you the option of sorting two additional columns. This way the sorting is done on the entire table and not just the data that is currently visible to you. The last sorting is stored in memory applied by a user per session.
  • Use a drag-and-drop operation to move the column left or right.
  • Move your mouse cursor at the end of the column and drag to re-size.
