Parent Folder ID

To create a folder within another folder (or nested folder), there are two methods to get the parent folder ID or location for the card:

  • Copy the end of the URL into the card to get the parent folder ID. For example, if the link was, copy and paste the bolded region after the slash as the Parent Folder ID.
  • You can also search for the folder to get the ID. Create a form which asks for the name of the parent folder, and then with a Search Folders action card return the Folder ID. This ID can then be used as the Parent Folder ID in the Create Folder card.
