organize flows into folders

Looking for a way to organize my flows into different folders. i make flows for different departments in our company and it would make it much easier to work with folders of flows rather than one long list

Really need something.  Basic organization ability isn't a huge ask.

Don't use folders, it's a terrible idea.   Allow tags instead, since a workflow could be used for multiple processes.  A folder would force the flow live in 1 place, whereas tags, can be associated with multiple items/concepts.

 

If you want "folder" now, simply create your flow inside solutions.  It appears 1 flow can also belong to multiple solutions... especially useful for child flows.

Why not both? We need some way to organize flows. I hit 15 flows and it's already becoming overwhelming and I have to hit ctrl-f every time I open flow.microsoft.com. That's not friendly ux design.

+1 on tags/labels rather than folders. Folders organize by containment and hinder discoverability.

How do you add tags/labels and sort by them?

@_Ken , if you mean how do you add tags/labels in Power Automate, you don't. At least, not yet. That's what I'm suggesting rather than folders. I have dozen of flows now and need to review/reference them by various criteria (for example, triggers used, department/population used by, test/dev/production, etc.). If MS introduces folders, that won't really help me because I'd need to pick just one folder to put each flow into. Tags/labels are far more useful than being able to put things into just one bucket (folder).

From Microsoft side , could you please update the status ? this has been raised back in 2019 and still sitting as a NEW. Please please this is a really important when having many flows.
