Provide a real method of organizing Flows

Currently, we cannot sort nor organize flows in any way I could find. It makes flows very difficult to manage.
Thank you.

The idea of having a way of organizing flows has already been submitted and closed as "completed" (read link: 
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Provide-a-method-of-organising-Flows/idc-p/281582#M14...

Unfortunately, the solution provided does not seem to answer the community needs, therefore I am reopening it again.

I'm afraid MS is letting us (the early adopters) down on this big obvious flaw....  I'm constantly searching through hundreds of flows ACROSS 2 separate environments... and wasted a ton of time due to the inability to attach multiple tags to a flow.  ☹️

I'm yet another user, wanting a way to simply organise, sort, manage my organisations flows....

I am migrating from SPD workflows to Power Automate for my SharePoint processes (finally) and found this issue to be a major gap in the functionality of PA.  In SPD, at least I can see workflows tied to a list/library or sort by name in the "Workflows" tab.  But Power Automate offers no way to tag, sort, filter or group different flows, so this migration is becoming a nightmare. With Power Automate/Apps, I keep feeling like I'm taking one step forward, two steps back, having to build work-arounds just to get my daily tasks completed - when basic, logical features need to be inherent and 'common sense' inclusions. It's hard to be excited about adopting this "new to us" application suite.  Come on, Microsoft, do better.

Hi! Yet another user here who is desperate for this basic functionality. I've just built 73 PA workflows and it is horrible to navigate the list, even with intuitive naming conventions.

As a quick win MS could at least implement a way to sort and filter on the existing columns (Name/Modified/Type)

It's important to remember that most companies do provide users the ability to create solutions and are limited to the default environment.

I have started using solutions to manage my flows, however only some of my flows qualify.

The basic/simple solution would be to allow folders in msflow

 

the ideal solution would be to let us organise flows into "projects" and allow security at a project level

No, don't do folders, that forces 1 flow to live in 1 place.  Allow tags, instead, more powerful concept, allowing multiple metadata.

With the changes this year to pricing and new quotas based on actions, it is clear they want power users, like the people commenting on this thread, to migrate over to Logic apps in Azure. There you can have all the tagging and organizational tools you want, just not for free 😢.

 

Their recent policy of turning off flows that aren't active for 60 days is further evidence they don't want to make it feasible to manage large numbers of flows in Power Automate.

If nothing else, filtering and sorting is a simple UI change.  The code should literally be a few lines of JavaScript.

 

I honestly can't understand how this isn't already a thing.  There's a reason it's built in to almost every table control out there.
