Option 2: From an items detail page, select "File to Folder" from underneath the Title.


Next, select an existing folder, or click "Create New Folder" to create a new one.

    This does not work for me.  Trying to file a route into a folder called "Portland"  I click on the route name, then file to folder, then choose the folder named Portland.  The name Portland shows up in the Folder column of the My Routes list for the desired trail.  Then if I refresh the page, the folder name Portland disappears from the folder column for that route.

    Hi @Harold,

    We're working to fix this right now. For now, click on your route to open it. On the next page click "File to Folder" at the top. That should do the trick.

    When I create a new track, it appears in a list called My Tracks; but when I import a track from my GPS, it seems to place it in a folder instead of the list with everything else. Similarly, once I move an item to a folder, there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it from that folder back to the list.

    It would be great if I could move my tracks, routes and waypoints in the general list to a folder as needed, or back to the general list...
