Managed Project Organization in Altium 365 Pro

Created: March 25, 2021 | Updated: May 19, 2023

With the latest release of Altium 365, projects can now be categorized by Folder Type.

Solution Details

In previous versions of Altium Designer, it is possible to organize projects by grouping them into specific folders via the Explorer panel. The grouping is not limited to a specific type, and it is very flexible to the users as intended to help them, for example, recognize multiple projects as being part of one large project. Now in Altium 365, users are able to view projects by first navigating through specific folders and then access the project.

How to Create the Folders for Grouping Managed Projects in  Altium 365 Web Browser

  2. Click
  3. Click

A pop-up window will appear, where you need to input a required Folder Name and an optional Description, followed by clicking to finalize.

  2. Right click on the Projects top level folder.
  3. Select "Add Sub Folder ► Other Folder Type". 
  4. Set Folder Type to Generic Folder.
  5. Change Folder Name to desired custom name. 
  6. Click "Add".
  7. For existing managed projects, drag and drop the projects into the newly created folder.
