You can create folders underneath each organization to further organize and categorize your projects. This way you can keep all the related projects together in one place and make it easier to find information.

Folders can contain one or more projects. There is no limit on how many projects you add to one folder. You can also navigate to the Folder’s Panorama view and have all the tasks from the projects listed out in one place.

Tip: Creating folders is optional. But it can definitely help organize your projects when you have a lot of them.
