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?
Why do all new programmers think "search" is a replacement for a structured filing system? Folders and subfolders is always more efficient, and if you can't remember where something is, you can THEN use search.
Without structure you are forced to "search" every time you need a document.
The new feature does help somewhat, but the ability to create folders to place forms that are for specific categories, etc. would be even more helpful.
I have only started using Microsoft Forms in the last two months and have 12 forms/surveys created so far and will have many more to create moving forward.
Sorry but the search feature and colour themes don't work well for me.
I would really appreciate the ability to have folders to put forms in folders to organise them.
This is of minimal help, as I have so many forms.
I was already using colour/themes to help with quickly identifying different forms, but it would be much better to have them grouped into folders rather than have to rely on memory and the search functions.

When there are hundreds of forms (like I and many others do), it becomes very cluttered, which means that colours and searching doesn't help much in the actual organisation of the forms. The ability to have folders to put forms in folders to organise them, would be an incredibly useful feature.
Colours and searching are OK, but it does not organise the forms and quizzes. folders are essential otherwise will need to go back to using something else. Forms are a good tool, however organisation of them will make it an awesome tool.

Agreed folders or tagging or something would be more useful. Search box is OK, but it looks cluttered. Theme really doesn't help with organization just presentation.
I use the same form, which is tailored slightly for different recipients; they all use the same colour (for 'branding') so the themes do not help me.
I want to be able to organise the forms into several relevant 'groups' so I can easily identify if any are missing / which groups are using them / which groups are not etc
Now I am using the forms in a trial. If successful I will need to create over 100 copies and will be adding to them often, if they are not grouped it will be extremely difficult to have a clear view of where we are with the project especially seeing that they cannot even be sorted alphabetically for instance
Please could we have the folder option ASAP
A) There are not enough themes or colors, and I can't sort my forms so that everything in one theme is grouped together. This makes it quickly a mess of different colored tiles that I still have to look through to find the one I want.
B) I use the same form many times and copy it to be sent out quarterly for new input. I have created Templates that I can always copy from. I need to be able to separate these so they don't get accidentally sent out and then have responses so I can't use them as templates anymore.
C) I need folders, or I need the ability to put my forms directly into my OneDrive so I can put them in folders there. This would allow me to keep all the forms for a specific project together, or to sort them by year so don't have hundreds of forms piling up with no ability to sort them.
The new features are good but not enough, please add folders soon.
Folders would be vital for me if I want to use forms in my classroom. PLEASE add folders soon!
No, the new features are not enough. We need to be able to drop our forms into organized folders.
Folders are ESSENTIAL for organising large numbers of forms in an education setting, by class or topic or year. Please add this feature ASAP!
I am a college instructor and I would like to keep each set of forms (evaluations) in a different folder since I use the same forms each term. Thank you for your consideration.

Search and theme doesn't help in grouping. Please provide ability to create the folder structure.

@ruoyingl While the search and theme card helps, it still doesn't make a big difference when you have hundreds of forms. I'm an educator at a local university and use forms extensively every semester. My forms page is way too cluttered because I'm unable to organise forms into folders. Please implement this feature. Thank you!

Not having folders to organise my forms/quizzes is the only thing holding me back from fully embracing this technology

I agree, the search box can be helpful, but it doesn't help keep the main section organised in any way. I have Health forms, PE forms, surveys, tests, House system forms... I currently have 25 "forms" but this will increase every semester because we are now running surveys and tests which each of our classes for certain units of work. It would be so much better if I could have my forms in a logical filing system.
I want folders.

How about a metadata column that we can configure so we can group / filter forms that way if folders is such an issue?
