    Greetings,

    I've been trying to import a thousand files that are spread out over multiple sub directories. I've copied the files and dir structure to the root portal and found the import method in the user guide. It works as expected, however it only adds the files that are in the root directory. Is there any way to dynamically add albums based on a sub dir structure?

    Thanks,

    -Matt

    I just tried and found that UMG does support this feature.

    I created a new UMG instance, then point its "root folder" to a existing folder. Once UMG start to synchronize it, it create an album for each directoty it finds. If a directory has child directories, these child directories are created as child albums.

    Back to your case, I think there are two possible reasons:

    1, UMG did create child albums, but some viewers does not support child albums so child albums are combined.
    2, UMG did not create child albums, because your directory which you wish to be created as a parent album HAS IMAGES.

    If a directory has images, UMG will create an album first, then these images will be added to this album. However, once an album has images, it cannot host child albums.
