How to work with folders

As you increase the number of test cases, cycles, and/or plans in your project, the organization of your content becomes increasingly important. Grouping testing artifacts into folders and sub-folders helps tremendously.

You can use folders to group tests for specific functions, requirements, or different test types, such as performance tests, integration tests, or system-level tests.

Create and organise folders/subfolders

  1. While in the Tests, Plans, or Cycles view, click Create Folder while your cursor is in the Folders panel. Type a name for your new folder, then click check to save.

  2. To create a subfolder, hover over and click the folder’s ellipsis icon.

  3. Click Add Subfolder.

Reorder Folders

Drag-and-drop folders to reorder the list (top to bottom changes) or to restructure and create parent-child relationships.

To make a folder parent or child, click-and-hold the move icon at the left of the folder name, then drag-and-drop the folder left or right.


If you have multiple folders and subfolders, you may find that collapsing/expanding at certain times helps you stay organized.

A carat indicated that a folder has a subfolder(s) within it. Click the carat to expand and collapse the folders.

You can also hover over a set of folders and click the ellipsis icon to access the expanse and collapse folder options.

Move Test Artefacts to a Folder

You can move test cases, plans, or cycles into a folder by selecting the test items you’d like to move, then dragging them into the folder of your choice.

Edit or Delete a Folder

You can edit or delete a test folder by clicking the ellipsis icon.

Select your preferred action from the dropdown list.
