Subfolder Creation via Template

Question asked by Ryan Dietz on Aug 4, 2013
Latest reply on Aug 5, 2013 by Laura Whittle

We are one year into the release of EPDM (2012 SP1) and now we have a need to deviate from the standard file structure. The current file structure is Engineering with the sub folders Archive and Confidential. The business is requesting a template to allow the engineers to separate their various designs. No big deal, I created a template that will allow them to do this. The issue I have is that I want to restrict them from calling the sub folders what ever they want. Is there a way to limit this?

 

Here is what I would like.

 

Engineering

     Archive

     Confidential

     A

          CAD

          Customer Data

          Feasibility

     B

          CAD

          Customer Data

          Feasibility

 

The sub folders A and B would be manually created via the new template I just built. I would like to limit the users from naming these folders anything other than A, B,C.... It would be great if there was a way for EPDM to know that the user is creating this group of sub folders for the first time and automatically name it A. If there were already an A in the folder then EPDM would know that the folder structure the user is creating should be named B or the next letter.

 

Any thoughts?
