Integration: Method to select folder in ProofHQ

This method allows you to browse and select the folder structure within your ProofHQ account and must be used to create a folder monitor when integrating a 3rd party application with ProofHQ. A folder monitor is a way by which one can "link” a folder in a 3rd party application to a folder in the ProofHQ system so that any changes made within the folder monitor can be replicated within ProofHQ Note: replicating changes are performed by the integrating software and does not happen automatically

Method URL

https://[URL to ProoHQ]/integrations/selectFolder

Where "URL to ProofHQ" must be the domain you use to access ProofHQ, if you have a custom domain then this custom domain must be used
