We need Folders for Projects!

Hi Invision, you're great. But you're missing something basic - folders for projects.

A challenge I face everyday is locating the right prototype under the cluttered Projects tab on Invision Cloud. I don't always know what keyword to search for, and even when I do there are multiple projects with similar names - which are truncated SMH. Inevitably forcing me to open and close a few projects until I find the right one. Oh and search is cleared when I return to the projects screen, forcing me to repeat the whole thing again - SMH.

All in all, this is simply NOT HOW PEOPLE WORK. We require folder structures (at least 1 level deep), full project titles displayed and search - which should be last resort - should retain search terms.

For a platform used predominantly by designers, it's lacking in this basic user experience consideration.

Hi Alok,

      “We require folder structures (at least 1 level deep)”

If this is one of your team requirements, you'll be please to know that in the upcoming move from InVision v.6 to v.7 the 'Spaces' feature > https://support.invisionapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003504231-InVision-Cloud-V7-What-are-spaces- - will be introduced which looks to do exactly what you are looking to do.

I don't think there is a set timescale for Spaces to be rolled out to all accounts but keep an eye on the usual channels for when it is more widely available. Hope this helps.

Thanks Rob, this is great news! While Spaces isn't a robust multi-level folder system, it's definitely a step in the right direction. Looking forward to the update :)

Why is it not a thing yet, i can see threads about this from years ago. At least it could automatically generate a folder for each page, and the content of each folder would be the artboards separately, kinda obvious...

Hi Aron,

We appreciate your feedback and definitely understand how the ability to organize projects would be an essential feature to your workflow, and our Product team is in fact tracking interest in this ability in the form of an open feature request. That being said, I will open a ticket on your behalf to track your interest for this.

The good news is, we have a feature called Spaces that will be introduced in in InVision V7 as mentioned above. This will allow for the ability to organize projects into somewhat of a folder structure! Release of InVision V7 for all users is TBD, but you can read more about it here.

Hopefully I was able to add some clarity and that the spaces feature will be the answer to your question and feedback. We always appreciate users like yourself who look out for us and help to make our product better and if you have any further questions, please let us know. 

Thank you so much!

Shaina

I couldn't agree more with Aron Boros and Alok. I've moved over from Marvel to InVision a year ago with the promise that this was on coming soon. Shaina Torgerson the article you're referring to was posted on Dec 12, 2017. It's now almost 2 years later (!) and we're still left without this feature. So although I understand it's hard to give an ETA, it's also hard to digest. Funny that after so much feedback and input we will get something that (still) doesn't completely fit our needs. I hope you will be our voice in getting this shipped as soon as possible :) cheers.

Hi Robin,

Thanks for chiming in here to add your feedback about the need for better organization with folders in the InVision Cloud. I've noticed that one of our Support agents has also taken the time to add your feedback for this potential feature in V6.

As noted in the the article you referred to that I posted above, this is something that will be solved with Spaces in InVision Cloud V7. You can learn more about how Spaces work in this article that we've created for InVision Cloud V7 users.

We are currently in the process of slowly rolling out InVision Cloud V7 to users. If you're on V6 but you'd like early access to InVision Cloud V7, you can make a request to transition here.

Please let us know if there's anything else we can help out with.

Have a great day,

Shaina
