Lightroom Mobile Collections question

Having taken my images, uploaded them to an LR Mobile collection they sync to desktop via cc. I'm using Collections created in my iPad when I am in the field.

I'd now like to create a desktop folder for them within say one of my existing ones such as '2016' Is there an easy way to do this or it just simply drag and drop which I have tried but doesn't seem to work. Maybe I am missing something?

I want to avoid a separate LR Mobile file structure on my desktop. I also need the desktop for keywording which you can't do on Mobile...but lets not go there for now.

Btw I find the upload of RAW files really slow and I'm on fibre optic.

Sorry if I am being a bit ignorant. I'm trying to work out a simple workflow that utilises the iPad for initial easy local upload but the desktop for a more robust file management.

Thanks

You can simply select the images and drag & drop them into the folders you want to use, just like you can do with any other images.

BTW, you can define any folder on any disk as the destination folder of your mobile phone uploads. Right-click on that folder and choose 'Set as Lightroom mobile downloads location'.
