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?
As teachers, we need to organize tests and quizzes with the topics they go with. It can be overwhelming to look at so many cards, even if they're color coded. It's especially hard when I need to reissue a test to a student that I have to go back and find. I would like to put all my tests for separate units in organized folders.
I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade English for a whole school year. I need separate folders for these grade levels and all of the stories that we've read and tested on.

Hi Team, Can we make folders for transfering one group of forms into folders like monthly weekly ?

@ruoyingl Unfortunately, those two updates do not address this problem. A search bar is great, if you know the names of your forms. As teachers, we're using many forms as quizzes throughout the year and then come back to them a year later. Its much easier and more efficient to be able to create folders and sort the quizzes by subject, unit, and sub-unit (or however we choose to organize our files). Colors are nice, but since the forms tiles are so big, it's still a lot of scrolling to find a form...and they still look very similar to each other!
Maybe there's another option besides folders, but what you have now does not meet my needs or the needs of many of my colleagues.
Please allow us to create folders so we can sort our quizzes.
Please add folders, is the best way to organize forms, a search bar is not enough. Each form I make need to have the same theme so is become a mess when I have to search for one.

Scenario: Teachers in our district are using Forms to provide student's with quizzes. It was fine when using in primary grades. Secondary grades is a completely different story. Each teacher teaches multiple subjects and their Forms landing page is getting out of hand with various Forms. One suggestion as trainers was to color code the Form based of the theme they add to the form. It's really frustrating to provide training to teachers and then have them feel let down because the featured which was asked over a year ago has not been fixed.

Forms are awesome, but it really needs a way to sort and organize the forms.
I am displeased to see this has not been addressed after more than a year of requests from users. I am slated to give a short presentation over Forms to other educators at my institution and it is disappointing to know that this will be a glaring problem for each of them. As such, I will be touching on other websites that perform a similar function to Forms that include a folder feature, among other functionalities. Those other websites are free for teachers to use, whereas our school pays to use Microsoft and simple features like sorting forms into folders are still not available. It's a shame.
I would love to be able to organise my forms and keep them in specific folders.

Several of my users are requesting the ability to be able to organize their various forms via a folder structure, similar to what Windows has trained them to do over the last 20+ years. Please add a "Create Folder" button. Allow us to name the folder, even give it a custom picture/color. Then allow easy drag/drop of forms into the folder, or alternatively, a way to click on form, select Move to folder, then choose folder.
Organizing Forms and Quizzes
It would be very helpful to organize forms and quizzes into folders, much easier when we end up with many.

This is one of the top user feedback requests our IT department is getting as we start having more and more of our employees use Microsoft Forms. Eventually they all come back and say, I'd love to put all the forms for this project into this folder, etc. Right now it's very cluttered.

I would love to see the ability to add folders in the forms main page. I have so many and it is getting very crowded.
I am loving Forms. You just keep getting better.

Uma biblioteca de pastas de formulários é essencial. Já existe no sharepoint para arquivos de word, excel. Falta o forms.
Daria um salto de qualidade enorme.
É algo muito básico, que a maioria dos concorrentes fazem.
I absolutely agree with the folders idea. The lack of organization that comes with having folders is really holding this app back from it's true potential. It's the only reason I am forced to still use Google Forms even though my office uses Microsoft.
Folders are desperately needed! I am reluctant to use this without the ability to organise the forms in some way. As a teacher looking to create assessments and quizzes for over 2500 students the dashboard becomes very cluttered. Searching is all well and good when you remember what a quiz was called, or even that you made one in the first place!

This is one of the main reasons why I prefer Google Docs. It is so much easier to organize your documents and forms. I know you offer the color coding option for forms, but that does not solve the issue since I use about 30 forms per year. Please please do this, I do want to use Office 365 and all its features.
Ability to group the forms would be very helpful.
Absolutely agree. Yes, the search function allows you to find the form you need easily, but you have no way of filing them away by year, category or however else you may choose.
We would still really like the option to put our forms into folders. Is this ever likely to be implemented?
