If they don't already exist, It would be nice to have folders to store workspaces.  My list is getting very large.  I like the tagging feature, but would also be nice to file some away.

It would be nice to have shared workspaces grouped by default into their own 'Shared Workspace' folder (similar to how shared dashboards work in Reports).

Interesting suggestion, @jer. Do you prefer that over being able to write your own folder names?

@benjamingaines, do they have to be mutually exclusive options?

 

As an admin, I create workspaces for various functional areas of the company and have many workspaces shared with me for review. I'd like to have shared workspaces automatically filed out of my main view.

 

I'd also like to have the ability to organize my own creations in logical groups/folders.


It would also be valuable to admin-level folders that could be shared just like workspaces (they would automatically share all underlying workspaces).

- Executive-level Workspaces

- User Experience Workspaces

- Digital Marketing Workspaces

 

This way we could point users to a folder with a focused set of workspaces instead of an overwhelming list.

@jer: No, they certainly don't have to be mutually exclusive! I was asking more to try to understand which one is more important to you, though. Thanks for sharing the use case - that's really helpful. We may want to talk to you (and @michael-jet) more about this soon.

Navigation of the project list is a problem for us too.  It is simply difficult for end users to find what they are looking for in a long list of projects.

 

I thought it was interesting that that when you introduced a mere 14 starter projects you felt the need to group them under 4 categories to aid navigation 😉

 

It would be great if you could consider introducing some customisable grouping or hierarchy for the main project list.

 

A note on 'tags'...

 

I'd imagine 'tags' were seen as the solution to finding/grouping projects.  However, there are a couple of reasons why I think tags aren't as affective as they could be:

 

1) Users don't get exposed to tags as a navigational aid unless they enter "manage projects", where tags are available as filters.  However, I'd imagine most users navigate to projects from the list on the workspace homepage/landing page (so never see these filter options).

 

2) The tag filters within 'manage projects' ironically suffer with the same issue that the project list suffers with i.e. we have a long list of tag filters that are difficult navigate/use and could benefit from some grouping!

 

If would be great if we could group the tag filters, perhaps in a similar way that filters are typically grouped on a retail site:

If you use Workspace, you start to accumulate a great number of projects.  It would be nice to be able to organize them in folders to avoid the clutter and be able to get to them faster (search is great, but you don't always know which one you need off the top of your head).  Tags aren't used consistently by users.  Even for your own they can take too much time when you are in the middle of a project.

Great feedback and very timely.  Seems related to http://ideas.omniture.com/t5/Idea-Exchange-for-Adobe/Analysis-Workspace-Folders/idc-p/1601 7

 

We're actively looking at this right now.  Would love to schedule some time to discuss later!

We are having trouble with too many AW projects as well. Fully support folders (nested too Smiley Wink)! 

 

I do like the idea of "Shared" folders as well as it will be nice for users to be able to easily find the folders that Admins have shared with  them.
