    It doesn't.

    I know all that.

    You've answered the question ... How do I go back to the old view?

    If you read the question you will see it is entirely different.

    What I am saying is that the folder view in the New View is entirely different to that in my Old view.

    The folder structure is not updating in a synchronous way.

    Thanks Mark

    Hello markashton on behalf of my colleagues we apologize if we did not understand what your inquiry is.

     

    Currently our navigation on our folder structure is designed like this.

    You can move forms to corresponding titles by dragging the Form Titles to the folders. JotForms tags them automatically.

    You can access the Create Folder, Create New Form, Share Form and other useful functions by hovering the folder and clicking the "down arrow icon" 

     

     

    Can you please provide a screenshot of what you are experiencing on your forms or JotForm navigation. That would really help us better understand your situation. Again we do apologize for any inconveniences. Thank you.

    How domyou post a screenshot without hosting it yourself?

    The Insert edit function doesn't give you an upload function does it?

    Thanks

    Hello Mark, thanks for that detailed screenshot. I see what you mean. The new navigation that our development team has reorganized the structure based on the how deep they are. You can collapse the folder just like any other folder tree by clicking the arrows on the left.

     

    I saw some similarities on your 2 screenshots. Some of them either you renamed them or has renamed accidentally. I hope not. Most of your remaining old forms are on the archive folder.

    I also would like to know if you are missing any folders on the new view. Please let us know so that I can escalate this to our development team. Thanks

    I would also like to add that at this moment you can not rearrange the sequence of the folders.

    I've never handled any folder management in the new view ...

    I change folders and move them around in the old view ...

    So the simple fact is that the new view does not synchronise and update wrt the old view.

    So .. How can I possibly leave the Old View  and move to the New View ... when the jotform folder function is totally broken between the two views?

    Pass this to Aytekin please

    Thanks Mark

    Hello, Mark. At this point of time, only the development team can address that question. I will escalate this on them for further investigation or atleast add a new feature to for this kind of situation. I will personally message Sir Aytekin on this.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    First off don't change a perfectl;y good problem describing headline:
    Folders In New View Are Different To That Of Old View

    To One That Isn't Correct:
    Feature: Folder Structure Positioning Feature 

    This isn't a feature ... it is a bug.

    i would like to move to the new view but can't because the new view does not represent the organisation I have in my existing view.

    So ... I'm stuck on the old view ... how the hell has nobody not noticed this

    Regards Mark

    You are free to use the old version if you would like but you should be aware of these things:

    1. We stopped maintaining it. If it gets broken it will not be fixed.

    2. Your changes on the old My Forms will not be imported to the new version. And vice versa. 

    Unfortunately, we cannot keep maintaining the old version. We are just leaving it for people who do not want to use the new version. But, we do not have manpower to support it. And, if the requests continue about the old version we will have no option left other than to shut it down permanently.

    Thanks
