Can I quickly add a folder to many projects?

I want to add a folder with 3 subfolders into around 300 projects (in addition to the existing folders, not to replace) - is there an easy way to do this other than manually? Jamie Hill JLL

Hi Jamie, You can add folders to several projects via an API call, but you need to specify the name of each folder and the ID of each project you need to create a folder in. Here's a call for adding folders on multiple projects: https:/ /yoursubdomain .my.workfront.com/attask/api/v7.0/documentfolder?updates=[{name:" fill in a name for your folder ",projectID:" fill in your project ID here "},{name:" fill in a name for your folder ",projectID:" fill in your project ID here "}]&method=POST&sessionID= fill in your session ID here Here's a call on how to generate the session ID in case you don't know: https:// yoursubdomain .my.workfront.com/attask/api-internal/login?username= fill in your username &password= fill in your password &method=POST Hope this helps.

Hi Anna, That's amazing, thank you. I had no idea you could make API calls from the browser!! Jamie Jamie Hill JLL

Interesting. Is there something similar that I could use to add 1 new task to many projects at once? (vs manually). William Dodson MaineHealth

Hi William, If the Projects in question all use the same Template, one way would be to use our "http://store.atappstore.com/product/sync-template/">Sync Template solution to push a new Task (in the right spot) out to whichever Projects match a filter you specify, rather than manually opening every one of them and doing it by hand, or having to write a (rather tricky, I assure you) API loop to do it.
