Is there any way to create a new folder from an opened folder? Preferrably by a User Action but otherwise a button.

Our first attempt is to create a CI from another CI, so a record of the same type. I can do that by cloning the CI and reset %Parent and all fields. I just wonder if this is the correct way to go.

The next step is to create a folder in another procedure. I am looking for firing one of the creation actions, but have no idea how. I can raise a flag but that will take time for the folder to be created and I want it to be opened right away.

Is there any way to do this?

Maybe a button with the exact URL to create a new folder  in the desired procedure? So open a page with URL /esd/eForm.aspx?Action=Raise+Incident&Map=Incident+Management&SERVICENAME=ICCM+e-Service+Desk or something?

Thanks!
Jerry

Take a look through the documentation for 'Transaction Protocol' and you will find what you are looking for. Instant folder creation with data passing capability and returning folder ID.

Its a .NET script that enables all sorts of interactions.

A fun toy for coders.

Yes, cloning is the best to create Folders in the same process.

To create Folders in other processes, there is a type of Button called 'create folder'. You set this in the button properties and enter the map and action name.
