Don't see "New Folder" option in Tasks list in SharePoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone

    In SharePoint 2013, I don't see an option to create "New Folder" under "Tasks" list. Do I need to change some settings to get this option? Thanks

    New Folder option is not available in Tasks list in SharePoint 2013, it is available in custom lists from List Settings > Advance Settings > set "Make New Folder" option enable

  • Hi Swetha

    The person who created your library may have specified that folders cannot be created in the library. If this is the case, the New Folder command is not available. With the proper permissions, on the Library tab of the ribbon, click Library Settings > Advanced settings, and in the Folder section, make sure that the Yes option is selected.

    Create or delete a folder in a list or library

  • Hello Everyone

    New folder option is not available in Task list. I can use Custom list and add Task as content type and use this custom list as Task list.

    Thanks everyone for responses.
