Create a Folder Trait

- In the Trait Storage window, hover over:
- "All Traits" text to add a new root level folder.
- An existing parent folder to add a new subordinate folder.
- Click the + icon to create the folder. Note that you can create a maximum of 2.000 folders in your taxonomy. See the usage limits documentation for more information.
- Name the folder and click Save . For example, a folder named Electronics will have a folder trait named 'Electronics Folder Trait'. You can view and select the new folder trait in the traits dashboard.
- The new folder trait is automatically assigned to the Audience Manager generated data source. Your users with appropriate Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions can change the data source in the edit folder trait workflow. See Edit a Folder Trait .
