Moving Folders

Table 19. Availability - Legacy plans


All users except collaborators can move folders.

Folders can be created inside spaces, projects, or other folders (in which case they're generally referred to as subfolders).

You can move folders from one location to another if needed. Also, you can copy the folder to different locations and tag the same folder in multiple locations.


When you move a Wrike item to a different folder, project, or space, it's automatically shared with all users who have access to the folder, project, or space it was moved to.

Move a folder within a space

If you wish to move a folder to another location inside the same space, you can use this method.

  1. Navigate to the Space 1 that contains the folder you want to move.

  2. Select the Folder 2 from the sidebar.

  3. Drag the Folder or Project 3 so that it’s over the name of the location where you'd like to move it.

  4. Let go of your mouse when the folder or project is over the item you want to move it to in the space.

Your folder or project is now a subfolder or subproject in the folder or project you moved it to.

Move a folder to another space

If you wish to move a folder to another space, or to a project or folder within another space, you can use this method.

  1. Navigate to the space that contains the folder you want to move.

  2. Click the relevant Folder 1.

  3. Open the folder item view using the Folder info 2 icon located near to the folder's title.

  4. Under the folder title, click the + 3 icon next to the folder's tags.

  5. Search for or select the new location you want to move the folder to.

  6. Click the x 4 next to the old location to keep the folder only in the new location you tagged.

Adding folders via permalink

You can add folders to any folder, project, or space using its permalink.

  1. Navigate to the Folder 1 you wish to add to another location.

  2. Open its folder item and click the Permalink 2 icon in the top-right corner.

  3. Click the Copy 3 icon.

  4. Navigate to the location where you wish to add the folder in table view.

  5. Click the + item 4 and paste the permalink.

  6. Press Enter, the folder is now added to the new location, and available in the previous location.
