Creating a DIY (Do It Yourself) Custom Sane Training Folder

You have the ability to create a DIY training folder by visiting your Filtering Folders section of the Folders and Features tab on your Dashboard. You should see an “Add new DIY training folder” button, as shown below.

You’ll be asked to name your new folder during the process, finishing with a click of the Create button. After a couple of minutes your new folder will be auto-generated, appearing as an addition to your list of Sane folders in your email account.

  • Then, train email messages to go into this DIY folder by moving example items from senders you want to see there. Do so for emails currently in other Sane folders as well as future emails, and we will remember which contacts are to go to that DIY folder in the future.
  • After it’s in place, you can always rename the folder as you would any other folder, right from within your email software or app.
  • You can add up to a maximum of 6 DIY filing folders with Snack and Lunch Plans. Up to 70 folders for our Dinner plan.
  • Please do not use an already existing name for a Sane folder.
