  • Hidden - Folder is only visible to creator and Administrators
  • Synchronise to Enterprise - will the folder automatically be published to the central Enterprise database (Enterprise site database only)
  • Automatically remove unused items - To limit the size of the Site/Hub databases it is possible for the Impact Enterprise Services to periodically check for unused projects and automatically remove them from the database. To automatically delete projects from a Site/Hub database each folder on the Site/Hub must opt-in using this option. (Enterprise site database only)
