How to add folder name to document library view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Project Server 2010.

    We have a set of standard folders on each of our project sites for Requirements, Development, Testing, etc.  Currently, we display this library like you would see in File Explorer - you see a list of folders at the top, double-click on a folder to drill down, etc.

    I want to display these same documents as a straight list of all documents - not grouped into folders - but with the folder name displayed next to it (sort of like an attribute).  I can create the list view easily by selecting the "Show all items without folders" option in the view settings; however, the containing folder name is not available as a column name.

    Is this possible?

  • I do not think there is an out of the box way to do this.

    The immediate solution that comes to mind is using a workflow, that runs everytime  a document is uploaded/item created, which may be too much for your scenario.
