Being able to upload folders is blocked by current browser technology. As standards evolve it might become possible, but right now nothing is planned. Instead we recommend that you zip your folder structure, upload and unzip it in Projectplace.

Hi Pascal!
Yes, you are right. If you had the Projectplace Plug-in installed then this was possible to do. With the latest document app Projectplace for Windows/Mac you need to zip you folder structure, upload and unpack it in Projectplace document archive.

Silvija, I am aware of the ZIP workaround. Unfortunately, after unzipping the content files are set to "no version management", even if version management is enabled for the parent folder.
Maybe you could inherit the version management from the parent folder even for unzipped files/folders?

Hi Tim!
As of now this is not something that we have planned right now. However we have received some other idea about the possibility to select many folders at once and activate version handling. That is something we might look at next year. See idea here and please vote if you like it. http://ideas.projectplace.com/feedbacks/150824-activation-version-handling-bulk

In general, it should be nice to be able to upload a structure of files with sub folders.
As you have written above so can I zip folders to a “package” and un pack in project Place.
BUT, when you do that so will all folders and files be set as not version handled ☹
That means you need to go through every folder and every file and activate the version handling.
Can this be fixed so is this a reasonable workaround to use a zipped file with the file structure.
Shall I open this as a own request or can this be a part of this request?
