There are two methods available to move items within a project. You can also move items between projects.

Move items in the Explorer Tree

Moving items in the Explorer Tree can be used when reorganizing the hierarchy of items within the Explorer Tree.

1.Select the item(s) in the Explorer Tree.
2.Drag and drop the item(s) into the new location.

This method is commonly used to re-prioritize items between releases within the Releases tab.

Move items in List View

Moving items in List View is useful when some, but not all items in a group, need to be moved.

1.Select the item(s) in List View.
2.Drag and drop the item(s) to the new location in the Explorer Tree.

Note: Hierarchy will be lost when moving parent and individual child items at the same time in List View. Child items that were not selected during a move will retain their hierarchy under the original parent item.

 

Undo move

Moving items in the Explorer Tree or List View will update the Explorer Tree hierarchy. Once a move is completed, the "Success" notification provides the locations where the item(s) were moved from and moved to. The notification lasts 10 seconds.

While the notification window is open you can select Undo Move. This restores the Explorer Tree hierarchy and returns moved items to their original location..

 

Find moved items in the activity stream

Once a move is complete, details of the moved items can be found in the Project Activity Stream.

Note: If you don't know where to look for items that have been moved you can use the Activity Stream to find which items have been recently moved and access those items. This is also an easy way to move all of the items back to the previous location (or to another location) after a move has been made.

1.Access the Activity Stream.
2.Use the search box to find the desired Item(s) moved entry.

3.Select View moved items to see all the files that have been moved in List View and to take advantage of the Move items in List View functionality shown above.

 

Rules for moving items: valid item locations

Components

Components can be located or moved to the root of the Explorer Tree.
Components can have sub-components.

Sets

Sets can be located or moved to the root of the Explorer Tree or inside of a component.
Sets cannot have sub-sets.

Folders

Folders can be located or moved inside of a set of the same item type it was created in or another folder.

Items

Items can be located or moved inside of a set of the same item type.
Items can be located or moved inside of a folder.
Items can have sub-items of the same item type.

Text items

Text items can be located or moved anywhere in the Explorer Tree, including any other item.

General rules

You must have write access to move any items. ex: when moving items between sets you must have write access to both sets.
When components, sets, and folders are moved, all of the items within them are moved as well.
Items can also be dragged from the right panel to the left panel. This removes the item from the original set. For example it is possible to drag items in a grid to a release under the Releases tab. This action will change the release on the item being dragged.
