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 folders. The search box and theme colors do not solve the organization problem.

Please add folders as a way to organize! We are adding 10 - 12 forms weekly for remote learning. Having to go through all of the forms each day is ridiculous.
This is a great idea! The search box and different themes do not go far enough

Sorry but search feature is great but it isn´t a sollution, I am a tecaher, I use forms for testing students. I have a lot of forms. I don´t want to search for the right one. We need folders. Or something for better organization.

Or be like Google and make Microsoft Forms part of the OneDrive file structure and let us do what we want with them. I know, I'm dreaming to ask for this if they can't even add folders in 3 years.

I have been using Forms for years, and am extremely disappointed that an organization option is still not available. Folders need to be available within Forms to make organization possible. Yes, the search feature and theme visuals helps, but Forms is an overall mess. One edit, deletion of a response, etc. moves forms to the top, making organization non-existent. Please, add folders!
I am Amazed this has been a request for over 3 years, to be blunt No the improvements made in 2017 are not the solution that was requested and do not address the scope of the problem. As Identified by many of the immediate issues outlined below mine this is a frustrating problem that continues to manifest itself. Organizing forms into folders allows the user to group them as necessary. is an absolute necessity and SERIOUS over site during the development of this solution.
We really need folders to organise the forms - a search bar is useful but does not help with the logistics of organising 100 forms. Please look into it!!
Samuel Alner commented
This doesn't fully overcome the problem of organisation when you can have 200 forms.
Also as a school sharing forms for different year groups or topics is really useful to allow different teachers to make shared forms.
If teachers could share folders of forms with one another this would save lots of uneccessary clicks.
Having a downloadable and uploadable form option would also be ideal so forms can be stored on one drive and kept permanently should the limit of 200 run out

Teaching multiple classes it would be much easier to find forms/quizzes created specifically for that class if they could be grouped into folders.

Please add folders for forms organization!
Karina Padron commented
This is absolutely necessary for forms. We use Forms for School Course Evaluations and for Quizzes so it is absurdly difficult to sort through Forms without having any standard of organization. Please we need this soon or our organization will have to switch to Google Forms.

Using Forms in Teams. Id like to be able to make a new form, within my team, without having to put it on a tab but have a tab that opens a window where I can see all my forms like in the normal forms window in 365.

I'd still find it helpful to be able to create folders to sort the forms.
This would be an awesome feature particularly for my teachers who are teaching multiple classes and for those teaching multiple curriculum areas.
Will act on the colour coding idea for now though...😊

I would like to be able to have folders to put my different forms in to better organize them. For example: These are my forms for my project on X and these are my forms for projet X, etc.
Thank you for requesting feedback! Those new features do not quite fulfill my need to have a clutter free landing page within Forms and to group like Forms together to duplicate at a later time. I am a teacher and use Forms often. I am using them MUCH more often now that I am having to teach remotely. I teach 5 classes and have to duplicate the same Form 5 times so that my responses for each class of students is separate from the other groups. This results in a landing page FULL of Forms. The ability to create folders on the initial page would be AMAZING!

In order to keep up with my goals and objectives that students are completing during Digital Learning, I need folders to put them in.
This request has been unaddressed for too long even though it's on the top 5 suggestions for years. As I understand it, this is because of either (or all) of the following 3 reasons:
1. Microsoft is understaffed and not many software engineers can work on this
2. The whole structure of the Forms ecosystem does not allow such an option hence this issue will never be addressed (the only reply we see is "TELL US MORE" almost 3 years ago)
3. They don't listen to their customers as much as they say they do and no one reads these threads (apart from us, the end users) and the whole suggestion box is just a hype.
..and my response to the above comments if they are valid:
1. I highly doubt so but if this is the case then just hire or allocate more people into this.
2. Start from scratch as there are many things that need improvement and with a fresh start you can address more issues.
3. I don't want to believe this but, this thread (as well as some other threads) is active for too long so what else can an end user think?
