Manifest groups are contained within folders. While you will be able to create Manifest groups, the folders that they reside in can only be created by Manifest Service administrators. This document describes the process to request a new folder. After the folder has been created it will appear in the dropdown list of folders that are available to you when you create new groups.
Before requesting a folder, consider if you already have a folder or if a folder already exists for your organization. You can browse groups in Manifest, or reach out to Manifest Support for help and we can match-make you with an existing folder. If you aren't sure about how to name your folder or where it belongs, see Manifest Group and Folder Naming Advice and Philosophy.
In addition, you may consider creating subfolders instead if it is applicable. While main folders Manifest can only be created by Manifest Service administrators, subfolders can be created by anyone with admin access to the folder it resides in. See Manifest - Working With Folders for more details.
