  1. Run VIA Pro for Desktop.
  2. Access your local Intralinks VIA folder, open a Workspace, and locate the specific folder.
  3. Right-click on the folder name and choose Rename on the menu.
    Note: If you're a Mac user and don't have a right-click option, press / hold the Control key and click the Workspace folder.

    Note: Folder names cannot contain the following characters: &/\:*"<>?| If a folder name contains an ampersand (&), you will not be able to download the files in this folder or view them in the online viewer.

  4. In the menu that opens, update the folder name and press Enter / Return.
  5. A green check mark will appear on the Workspace icon once the change has synced online.
