Organize Connections Into Folders

Would be nice to be able to organize my connections into folders like "Dev", "Test", "Prod", or by focus, like "Reporting", "Web", "Internal", etc.

        I was just going to recommend the same thing - Thanks for adding this. Unfortunately it was added in 2010 so I'm left with wondering if this will get worked on? I added three votes to it as I'd REALLY love to be able to do exactly what others are suggesting such as "Production", "Dev", etc..

        Would love a way to organize all my connections using a hierarchical folder structure. This is the one thing missing in my opinion to make this the perfect tool.

        I'd love to have this feature! Having 50+ saved connections across multiple environments is a lot to manage.

        @Joe Albahari, is there any reason why you do not pick on the quick win feature ? Sounds not too complex to implement and a lot o people are looking forward to it.. thanks

        it is ok to be able to give a "production" tag to connections, however it would be very very useful to organize them into a hierarchical way

        I have a lot of these some organisation is needed. Folders would be great. Alphabetical order would also help

        I'm drowning in conncections,accounts,sources....
        I love the tool but this is slowing me down.

        I was just thinking that this would be a great feature to have. This would help alot, as well as the ability to sort the connections by name.. I am slightly OCD, so when I have dev/test/prod databases mixed, it is irritating.. Folders would help to sort by client/project, and then servers.

        Seemingly simple, definately a great idea. Since each connection is a server and database, I quickly got the vertical scroll bar. I'd suggest user defined tabs, as some people may want department categories, others might want server categories.

        I think this is a great idea. I usually have a lot of connections established, and it would be nice to be able to organize them.
