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.

In the era of microservices for one application, you have connections to a lot of databases, so organize them at least to the top level folder will be very helpful

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
Carlo Della Porta commented
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.
for me too, I have too many connections into my LinqPad :/

It's been three years. Any progress on this?!?!

Got 47 connections in that list.. I now rely on rename to group them together...
James Sampson commented
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.
Greg Benson commented
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.
