In this lesson, you are verifying that your customization is successful by testing the customization in Management Center.

Feature Pack 6 or laterAttention: This tutorial is based on the folder support that is included in Feature Pack 5 and is not recommended if you are on a newer feature pack level. Beginning with Feature Pack 6, support is provided by default for grouping e-Marketing Spots, activities, customer segments, marketing content, promotions, and attribute dictionary attributes. This support includes the capability of creating, changing, and deleting folders within the Management Center Catalogs, Marketing, and Promotions tools. You are not able to group folders created by following this tutorial with folders that are created by using Management Center. If you create Management Center folders by following the steps included in this tutorial, delete those folders before you create folders by using Management Center. For more information about folders, see Folders.

Feature Pack 7 or laterSupport is provided by default for grouping content pages and layouts in the Commerce Composer tool. This support includes creating, changing, and deleting folders with the Commerce Composer tool.

  3. Select the Aurora starter store.
  4. Ensure that your explorer view displays the e-Marketing Spot folders. From the explorer view, navigate to E-Marketing Spot Folders > EMarketingSpotFolder > JanuarySpots. The following screen displays sample folders in the explorer view:
