The Import Virtual Machine(s) window contains a tooltip question mark (?) next to the Data Center field when importing a VMWare source. When hovered over, the tooltip explains that folders can also be added to the Data Center field in the format <folder>/<Datacenter>.

Is that a bug, or a feature request?

Comment 7 Yuko Katabami 2016-08-19 18:18:59 EDT
While translating the 4.0 Release Notes, I checked the actual help text which is shown when you hover over the question mark in the Import VM(s) dialog.
It states "Datacenter can be a hierarchy path such as: folder/datacenter."but does it actually have to be:
Datacenter can be a hierarchy path such as: folder/datacenter/folder" missing out the folder under datacenter?
