Frequently Asked Questions¶
How are data organized in Orion, starting with release 2021.1.1?¶
Project Data Page¶
The new data organization system implements familiar concepts of paths and folders to organize and access data in Orion.
Users will still create projects, and the data will remain in the
organizational structure. Now, users can organize the data the way they would like
to share data among team members in a project. In addition, there are controlled data sharing
capabilities among members in the project. To achieve these objectives, the following objects
are available to users.
- My Data
The data in this location are private and only accessible by the user. However, these data still can be shared by moving the data to a Shared Space.
- Team Data
The data in this location are available to all project members.
- Shared Spaces
The data in this location are available to project members selected by the user. Most operations on folders are available with shared space. See Shared Spaces for more information

For more information on the use of the project data facilities, see Data Organization in Orion.
What actions do I need to take if I had an account on a previous version of Orion?¶
In this new data organization, users will need to take some action on the shared data from previous Orion versions.
Decide how to organize the data.
Move all previously shared items into the appropriate folders.
Assign collections to a project.
How can I create a new subfolder?¶
To create a new subfolder, first select the place
Team Data or
Shared Spaces) where you want to create a new subfolder.
Then, click on the icon next to the path (example:
My Data). In the pop-up window, enter the
folder name and click
OK. A new subfolder will be created
with the specified name in the selected path.
Do I need to create a subfolder before uploading data or running a floe?¶
No, a new folder or subfolder can be created in the same window you use to upload data or when starting a Floe run.
To do this,
select the path and then enter the name of the
subfolder you want to create. A green bar
will appear with
Create a new folder, next to the
subfolder name you just entered. Click on
new folder. A new folder or subfolder will show up
on the path specified.
Can I move a subfolder to another path or location (another project, main folder, or subfolder)?¶
Yes, subfolders can be moved to another path or location. To do this, select the folder you
would like to move, and click either the bi-directional line icon on top or the ellipsis
icon, and select
Move. Then, choose the destination or path and click the
The subfolder (and its contents) will be moved to the specified destination or path.
Can I move data between projects, folders, or subfolders?¶
Yes, data (datasets, files and collections) can be moved between projects, folders or subfolders.
To do this, select the data you would like to move and click the bi-directional line icon or
the ellipsis (
...) icon and select
Move. Then, choose the destination or path, and click
Move button. The selected data will be moved to the specified destination or path.
Multiple datasets can be moved at once.
Can I specify a path when launching a Floe run?¶
Yes, a path or location can be specified in the job
submission form. When launching aFloerun, you will see an
Output path property field. The default path will be
Project Name/My Data. To go up a directory, click on
the up arrow or use the backspace key to move up one
directory. Finally, select the path you want.
How do I upload a file in this new data organization system? Can I specify a path?¶
Yes, a path can be specified when uploading a file into Orion. To specify a path,
select the folder or subfolders as applicable. Alternatively, you can go up a
directory by clicking on the up arrow or using the backspace key.
Also, you can create a new subfolder by entering the name and then
Create a new folder.
How can I quickly access a subfolder I created?¶
To quickly access a subfolder, you can mark it as a favorite by clicking
on the star next to the folder, and it will be added to the
Favorite Folders area in the left side column.
How can I search for datasets in this new system?¶
You can still search for datasets by entering a tag or resource name in the search bar. Select the main folder or space you would like to search. Next, enter the tag or resource name and click on that name. Then, the results will be shown at the bottom of the page. In addition, you will be able to see the path where this data can be found.
How can I delete data? (and multiple selection of datasets)¶
To delete data, first select the data you want to delete
by clicking on the square box on the left side to the folder or subfolder name.
Next, click the icon on the far right or in the top menu.
Multiple data can be selected and deleted at once. Then, these data will be

How has 3D Modeling changed?¶
The list on the
3D Viewerwas moved to a record focused list.
Badges to identify molecules, proteins, and other components were added in the list.
Protein editing tools (for example, change protonation states, mutate residues, delete sequence, etc.) were added in the 3D Modeling page. An edited protein can be saved as a new dataset.
More options to save edited molecules are now available.
A discussion board was added for collaboration and replaces Saved Views.
What has changed on the Workfloe Page?¶
Job cost alerts can be set globally for all Floe runs in the Profile section. Users can modify Job cost thresholds in the Job form before launching a Floe.
Promoted Parameter Grouping
