    Create and Manage Folders

    Folders can be used to organize files in your projects or components. You can create folders in OSF Storage or many third-party storage add-ons to group files together. Folders have the same privacy settings and contributor permissions as the project or component in which they live. Furthermore, the contents of a folder can be downloaded as a .zip file.

    Edit the Wiki

    The wiki is a versatile tool for interacting with your team and others who view your work. Wikis can be used to explain the main points of your project and can contain information like lab notes, contact information, or more in-depth details about your project.

    The wiki supports collaborative editing, meaning your entire team can work on it at the same time. You can also make wikis publicly editable to allow visitors to your project to contribute. All versions of a wiki page are saved, so you can always go back to previous versions and compare current wikis with previous iterations.
