Group/Folder

Description

 

Groups or folders are used to organize your entries in a logical way. It's possible to create an extensive hierarchy groups and sub groups which Remote Desktop Manager for Mac will automatically sort alphabetically.

 

Groups can be created in two different ways:

 

Via the session properties

From the session tree view

 

You can assign a group type to simplify the organization:

Creating Groups via the Entry Settings

 

Groups can be specified in the session properties. Simply fill this field with your desired group name and Remote Desktop Manager for Mac will generate the corresponding tree structure. Use the backslash ( \ ) to create a sub group.

By right clicking the root node of a group or an existing session, a context menu appears allowing you to create a new group.

Once a group is created you can add a session by using the menu or by dragging its node directly to the content of the group.

 

Multiple Groups

 

Add an entry in multiple groups by setting two or more destinations, which are separated by semicolons “;”. You can also use the browse button (…) and select more than one group by holding the Ctrl key while clicking on the tree node.
