To have options for creating folders in Forms.
I suggest Microsoft Forms team to think of an option to create folders and then create forms in it.
So that I can have all the forms related to one activity in one folder and also searching becomes easy.
Moreover, the dashboard looks clutter free.
Kindly give a thought.
Thanks all for your feedbacks and suggestions. As you may noticed, we’ve added two features to help you find target forms easier:
1. Search box. You can find a form by search the form name or form owner.
2.Form’s theme is shown in form card. If you are using different themes for different type of forms, it’s easier to find out forms by color.
Does the new feature help? Could you tell us more if the new feature doesn’t solve your problem?

Please add this feature. I also work with students and like to organize their assignments.

I agree with everyone who is saying folders are necessary for organization. It's been 4 years since the original idea was posted. Why isn't this an option? I'm also a teacher and while forms is very useful in our virtual learning, I'm drowning in the sheer number I have (36 so far between last spring and this fall plus all the surveys we have to administer).
It's a bandaid on the problem, sure... but I agree. Forms needs folders like One Drive to organize assignments. There could be a folder for each subject or each class, even the separate units.... just like One Drive. It just makes them easier to locate rather than a gigantic never-ending list.

I would like to mimic what everyone else is saying here. I'm a teacher as well and I'm loving using forms. It's great for quizzes, tests, even just quick check-ins with students.
But it's only Sept 20 and I already have 20+ forms for my classes. I'm not repeating any this year but next semester I will be very frustrated to have to sort through all the forms (that are for different courses, units, etc ...). Folders would make this so easy.
No this does not help. We simply need the option to organize our forms by folder.

@ruoyingl sorry but these features do not help at all. Would be much better if they can be shared to a particular "folder" or "channel". There is a slight improvement that you can move them to a Team now but no way to sort them within the Team.

Not adding anything new here, but teachers could really use this feature. We are using forms for assignments and quizzes. By the end of the year, I may have a page of 1000 of them. There needs to be a way to organize them.

Consider doing a Channel-like approach like in MS Stream - this is an great approach
Please add folders! We do several trainings a month and have sub-tests for each sessions. Folders would be a tremendous help.
Please help all of us in education to create folders within forms. Colors and a search are not viable solutions if you are a teacher. Thank you!
It doesn´t help. As a teacher, I create many quizzes in a week and it is very difficult to find them and check them before sending them to the students. Could you add folders?

Please add folder options. This would help organize all forms. Aditionally a cronological listing would also be helpful.
The solutions in Google Formular are helping users to organize the Work and find teh forms in different folders and list options (owner, date, list, alphabetical).
Please help all of us in education stay organized better but allowing us to create folders within forms. This would allow us to better support our students learning and spend more time building relationships with them rather than searching for the correct form. Thank you!
Please consider this option as we are using a standard theme for all our forms, so colour option is not a permanent solution. It would be much more organized if you have a folder for each activity. Thanks.
Colors and a search are are not viable solutions if you are a teachers. As mentioned in previous comments, I have the same quiz for 5 classes. It quickly becomes unmanageable after a few days of class!
These features are clearly not a solution to organising the multiple forms that we have as teachers. I have to use the colour for my subject as we use them across the school, so organising by colour is not an option.
When you have so many forms created as well trying to search and recall what an old form was called is clearly very little help. We can use folders for everything else so why not this?
This is absolutely not a solution to the problem.
Without the ability to split results of a form by class/teacher/year you need to create a copy of the form every time you want to distribute to a new group - you can't even reuse the same forms every year for the same reason.
The number of forms quickly becomes unmanageable. I now need to add the class name AND the year to my Form Title for the search to be anything close to useful.
We need folders if we are going to continue to use this in the educational setting with multiple subject and grade levels. Just make an option to create folders.
Thats not a solution that i'm happy with, i still needs to scroll to be able to fins the specific form. As the suggestion is, create folders is the best solution here.
It's better but folders would be a fantastic addition. I create forms across a number of school year groups and courses so it would be great if I could have folders to organise them easier.
