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?
Colours are good but folders are much better

Folders would be extremely useful! I teach several different courses and have different form types for a few of them. It would be nice to have all of them grouped together by class. This would also make it easier for me to find and update them year-to-year.
Our campus used to use a Google-based system and we had color-coded folders for everything. It seems Microsoft would be able to offer this relatively simple feature as well.

I need folders in forms.

The suggestions above don't offer help, It's hard to sell this to teachers at a large school district when other options are available out there such as G. It's been about 3 year since the color coding option was introduced and now with the addition of Teams, this option simply doesn't cut it. Get it together Microsoft. Your last response was is 2017, really...

Search does not solve the problem in it's entirety. We might not remember the name of the quiz and having a folder system would make this much easier. Seems simple and obvious, it's amazing that it's not already a feature.

For a user who creates forms and assessments at a company with more than 60,000 employees - the inability to create folders to organize your forms is curse! Imagine organizing and searching for forms (which you have to archive or keep for at least 2 years for records purposes):
1. Assessments for new joiners (which happens every month)
2. Shift preference surveys
3. Assessments for in-house training
and many many more.
Is it really that hard of a feature to allow folders? I mean...google does it.
Color coding only helps if you can arrange them by color. Microsoft doesn't even allow you to organize your forms!
I spent half my day creating forms for a class then after realizing I couldn't organize them, realized I would have to spend the rest of my day re-creating these forms in google.
Sure glad I signed up for microsoft 365. I was so excited to streamline all my documents, training materials and quizzes in one spot and now I will be able to!
Once I move all my materials to google that is.
Yes, folders! But even a way to sort, would be helpful!
I have two different roles in my school district. Being able to compartmentalizations forms for my students away from forms for staff would be super helpful!

As teachers use this for multiple quizzes for multiple sections of students throughout the year, it gets really messy in Forms. The ability to sort into folders would be really helpful.
Please add this! Not sure what else to say other than it is painful to use a lot of forms without it. I really don't see why this would be such a difficult thing to implement.....
If you are looking for something similar to Microsoft Forms, but with folders, I would suggest using Google Forms. It is ridiculous for a company as large as Microsoft to go for YEARS without implementing this feature. Even a comment suggesting they are working on implementing this would count for a lot, but instead they are ignoring their users' most demanded feature. As a teacher, it took me 20 minutes today to create an email with all the links to Forms I've created to share with other teachers in my district because we don't have folders, and thus can't easily share multiple forms. Microsoft please, I would literally pay for this feature.
Will this ever be addressed, it becomes a bit of a nuisance to keep forms compiling on the same folder (or lack of folders) when a user has many different forms.
Seriously - this should never have been an issue in the first place and it is egregious that it still isn't implemented after so much feedback. At the VERY least, there should be labels so forms can be filtered and sorted. No ability to organize forms makes it nearly useless after you have more than a few dozen. Searching is not the answer in a team environment when not everyone will know the names of every file. I can't believe this even needs to be said.
Tell us more was from a year and a half ago. Color coding and a search bar are not sufficient to organize a work space. We need to have a SHARED workspace so more than one form developer can collaborate and have the shared material organized. Please escalate this to Looking At It, since this process seems to take a very long time.
Still a need. Puzzling that this is such an issue for such a large scale tech company. Come on guys/gals, code it in already.

Agreed, still need folders please! An option to archive old ones to not show up on the dashboard would be acceptable for me I suppose, but folders preferred
This doesn't help if you are using the theme to have your business/organisations branding as they are all the same. Search is OK if you know the name or owner which isn't always the case!
Thanks for the enhancements, but we still need folders!

I think that this request is asking the same as the this one https://microsoftforms.uservoice.com/forums/386451-welcome-to-microsoft-forms-suggestion-box/suggestions/17270663-to-have-options-for-creating-folders-in-forms
