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?
I use Forms to assess students (quizzes) and really need a better way to organize them. A search and color-coding is not enough. If I have six different classes, test on a variety of topics, and want to have each year/semester organized in a specific place, I need more levels of organization available to me. Please, please, please add folder options to Forms! The inability to efficiently organize my quizzes by class, topic, and year is what prevents me from recommending Forms as a tool for other teachers.
Teachers would like to be able to create folders in forms to organize their forms. They are using them for CFAs and would like to be able to organize them by subject and standard.
I agree with all of the other comments. Folders for grouping forms are really an important feature that is missing.
I would prefer to see folders to organize my Forms

The ability to add tags or keywords to forms like in word docs would be very useful. As well as the folders. This would make it easier to sort and search.
Add TAGs to forms, in a way we can sort/find using TAGs

New features are great, but it didnt solve our problem. We need folders for organizing Forms. I use Forms for testing our students. I have almost 30 Forms and add more. Search and theme didnt help me much.

I don't think that feature helps... we are using Forms for vendor selection across multiple projects in MS Teams. As the PM on all of those projects my Forms page is a mess, even with themes (we have one theme because we brand across the company). Searching doesn't help much because they are similarly named.
In Teams it looks great - each team has it's own Forms tab. The team members never see the template, sub templates, and all the other forms outside of the project because the Teams interface keeps all of that hidden. When I look at it to do analysis it's a jumbled mass of similarly named items with our company's color theme.
Really hope that we can move each related forms into a folder so that it looks much organize compare to the current.
Need folders in Forms to organize quizzes
Having multiple quizzes and surveys in a given school year makes the interface way to cumbersome for advanced use. Scrolling through endless pages of huge icons that all relatively look the same to find a past form is a waste of time. Allowing the icons to be toggled between the standard size and smaller versions would help. Then allowing for the forms to be organized into user defined folders would help to streamline the user interface.
It would be great if there is a way to organize/catalog Forms. I am building a large number of Forms that need to be replicated in 10 languages. nForms X 10 languages= a lot!. The ability to organize these Forms in like topics or like languages would be an excellent addition.

While the 2 features of a search box and seeing a Form's theme are nice they are not what we need. We need to be able to organize forms into Folders. You have asked for feedback on this and I see there are over 100 comments in this thread letting you know how important it will be to organize forms by folders.
There are 525 votes for this idea. You need to understand that teachers don't have time to search through the dozens of Forms they created or even to remember what they named it so they can search for it or remember what color theme they used.
I'm not a developer but it seems like allowing folder organization should be something that's easily done. Not sure, why the last news we've heard on this is from July 18th 2017. This should of been done a long time ago.

Please add the option to organise forms/quizzes to folders. Forms and quizzes are a great way for teachers to support learning, however as the number of forms created/shared/used with classes grows one long list becomes difficult to navigate and remembering the name you called a form created a number of months ago can also be difficult. To be able to save the forms to folders would enable better organisation and it is a familiar concept for teachers to use.
Having the option to create folders would be very beneficial for there are numerous others who will be adding to our documents! When searching for a document, having them organized into folders by subject matter just makes it so much easier to locate.

Maybe an archive-function does help in this matter... So you can see more clearly what form is active and what form has to be archived (to save the results and maybe use it again next year...)
It's invaluable as a teacher, with potentially 100s of quizzes and forms every year. Searching for names would be difficult. Please, PLEASE make this happen. I see another person has asked for this, but I can't comment on the reply that said that searching and coloring the forms might be enough: IT'S NOT! Thanks!

I am a Technology Administrator, and I have multiple forms that perform a function across our organization. However, I also have some forms that are specific to certain teams or campuses. I'd like to be able to categorize these forms instead of having a long list of all of the forms to look through. It would make finding the form I need much easier.
I like the new feature too, but we really need folders. It would be way easier to actually organize and not just sort so many Forms.

Enable users to put forms into folders to categorise them
create an archive folder for folders yo may need to look back on in a year's time
