EDIT: Apologies, I realized after creating this idea that there is a similar one here

Maybe this duplicate idea will help get this more traction though!

 

It would be extremely helpful to be able to organize surveys in Survey123 Connect and survey123.com, either through folders or section headers or something similar. As someone who has authored dozens of surveys (and there are others out there who have made hundreds!) I know it can start to get very cumbersome to navigate to the correct survey, especially since the entire survey title does not display if it is beyond a certain character limit.

Here are two related posts on this topic:

This would be a great functionality to add into Survey123 Connect.  As @Katherine_Clark suggested, the use of headers or folders would be helpful, or simply the ability to alphabetize them.  Additionally, if there was an option to filter to show my content vs others content from the organization.  I have downloaded S123 templates from my organization that others had authored, to reference; now those just sit in there with the rest of my content. 

 

Additionally, to add onto the  whole survey title not appearing, I could see this being resolved by adding the functionality of tooltips when your cursor is hovering over the survey title.

Upvote.  I have 117 forms right now but I was at 250.  Like you said they are all Standard Company Name...

Another idea is to be able to just flip to any dir on the network and go.  See here which is similar  https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-ideas/survey123-ability-to-have-survey-stored-on-a-ne...

One thing that did help is making icons for the forms so that I can see the name of it.  Also using tags has helped then use those in the search bar.  Here is my connect with everything being ...  Only way to tell is the icon now.  Even just a list view vs icons would be great.

Yes!  Upvote, upvote, upvote!  (Same goes for the files in AGOL).  We need better ways to manage the files.  It would be great if I could have a 'draft' folder for surveys I am working on, and a 'final' folder for surveys that are complete, another folder for 'obsolete', etc.   

Thanks

Yes, Yes, Yes! I agree with this idea completely. I hate that I am unable to see the full survey file name on the Survey123 Connect home page. I organize my surveys by having the project name first and then the actual survey name so they are together, but I cannot tell which survey is which. It would be really nice to see the full survey name or at least have the full survey name when you hover over the survey icon. And it would be great if you could organize the surveys into folders.
