Yes, just tried it and feel the same way. I was hoping I'd be able to go to a default view where I just see the folders I've created. Took me a sec to figure out where my new folder even was. :) 

Phil's idea sounds great: The option to see all, but the default would show our lovely new folders along with anything we haven't filed in a folder yet.

A couple more things...

I'm not seeing any indication on the main screen of courses that a course has been filed in a folder.

The only way for me to know whether a course on my main screen has been filed is to go through a 4-click process to file it before getting the message "This item is already part of a folder." That feels like a long journey with no payoff. Plus there's a 5th click required to get rid of the error message.

Maybe if there were some sort of flag or indication on the course's icon to indicate that it's already been filed? That would sure help a lot.

It also makes me wonder if it the filing process could be done in fewer than 4 clicks. Right now it's: 1. Select the ellipsis, 2. Move to, 3. Select Folder, 4. Move. 

Maybe "4. Move" could be eliminated? I already know I'm moving it. It feels like it should just go into the folder I select without an additional confirmation that I want to move it.

Please implement Phil's suggestion - not only here but across the board in Rise. Rise will have the best user experience when it's designed the same way that we've been using folders for our desktop and nearly every other application. When something's moved to a folder, that's where it should show up.

With that, very thankful for the new features! Keep up the good work - the constant improvement is very much appreciated!

This is great! But I agree with the comments above, too many clicks to put each course into a folder and no indication if a certain course is already in a folder. Also, it would be nice to select several courses and move them all to a folder at once. Is that something that we could see in the future? I was really looking forward to be able to move them to folders but I have too many courses to move them one by one.

 I want to add my thank you to the Articulate team for another great addition!

A hat tip to Phil and Jackie for mentioning a user defined default view with folders and an indicator on each icon as to it's folder assignment (or lack of one).

Could we consider having child folders added in as well?  I know many of us have alternate or historical versions of courses, and I personally would like to show the current version in a parent folder, older versions in a child folder.

How about a multi-select tool or click and drop feature to allow for mass sorting and filing?

I love the idea of publishing to a folder!  If possible, could we have the choice to force our peek videos into a folder?  Would be nice to keep those separate from my courses.

Thanks again!
