Setting the default start location

Open the library to a folder that you work in frequently.

By default, a library opens to the top level. If there is a specific library folder or subfolder used frequently by the library members, the place manager can set that folder as the default start location. After setting the default start location, every time someone logs in to the library, the initial document listing shows the selected folder.

To set the default start location:

  1. Expand the portlet menu. Click Configure.
  2. Click the folder name next to Default Folder.
  3. Click the folder or subfolder name you want to set as the default start location. If necessary, expand folders to show sub-folders.
  4. Click OK.
  5. To test the start location, return to My Places, then reopen the library. Instead of opening to the top level of the library, the start location folder is displayed.
