Allowed characters in file and folder names
When uploading files or creating files the following special characters are not allowed: * " < > \ / ? : and |
A period/full stop ‘.’ is not allowed as the last character in a file or folder name.
Use legal sorting and numbers to order folders
To order files or folders prefix them with a set of numbers e.g:
(The above works well if you select “Legal” under the sorting drop down in the document library – if you select “Name” as the ordering of data you must pre-fix a 0 to the beginning of your number to order data properly – for example 01, 02, 03 …)
Please be aware that folders will always appear ahead of files regardless (top to bottom). Files always appear below the last folder.
