Edit Folder Templates


Applies to:

SmartVault Tax and Accounting plans

Although folder templates apply to both Tax and Accounting plans, some non-tax templates may be empty for tax customers.

Folder templates are used to create the folder structures in your account and only apply to the folders that are created for actions such as adding a client, creating a new engagement, or adding an employee. For every folder template, you can add, rename, delete folders and sub-folders as well as change permissions on a folder.

View and Edit Folder Templates

Folder templates live in the SmartVault Dashboard under Manage Folder Templates:

When you access the folder templates, you'll notice a list of templates. These are set by default.

Click on View and edit templates CP_view and edit template icon.jpg for the template you'd like to edit. For this example, we're editing the template designated for a Payroll engagement (the folder structure you'll see when you create a Payroll engagement).


When you edit the template, it displays all of the folders that SmartVault uses when you create a Payroll engagement.

Adding Folders

  1. To add a folder, we'll click the gear icon next to the Payroll yyyy folder and select New folder. This creates a new folder underneath it, appropriately labeled 'New Folder'.

Changing Permissions

  1. To change permissions for a specific folder, under Access, set the groups who can access this folder and the level of access each group should receive. Click the icon to add a group, and click each checkbox to set what the group can access.
