Nested Folders

I finally figured out how to create a nested folder. It took a lot of digging for me to finally find it. Why can’t your developers just make a button under Create Folder that says create sub folder? Zoho & Lastpass allow you to create subfolders with the click of a button. That would make it so much easier for people who are non-tech savvy. Having to figure out how the Nested folders work by using a naming convention with the forward slash character (/) as a delimiter. For example, if I have folders with the names “Work” and “Work/Email”, “Email” will be nested as a sub-folder underneath the “Work” folder.

Original Title: Nested Folders (NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE RIGHT PLACE TO BE ASKING THIS)

Yes, this is the right place to ask for feature requests.
I have tried to create a sub folder before but for some reason it just doesn’t work. I named my folder Personal/Accounts but no sub folder was created. What am I doing wrong?

Please read this guide: https://bitwarden.com/help/article/folders/
Keep in mind that folder names are case-sensitive. If you have a ‘personal’ folder and you add a new ‘Personal/Accounts’ folder, it would not be nested under ‘personal’.

All the best,

Do you already have a ‘Cards’ folder or are you trying to create a subfolder for the ‘Cards’ category?
Please create a new ‘Cards’ folder and let me know what happens.

Do you think the help document should be more clear or was it my misunderstanding?

You may be right, I’ll pass this forward.

It would be really useful if you could have nested folders, just like a on a real file system, because if you have like a few hundred passwords it get really confusing to find the passwords or come up with unique names.

Especially if you have either passwords for deployments or like a work category (or one for shopping and so on) you really need more structure.

You can create nested folders. Lets say your parent folder is test then you can just create a nester folder like this: test/nestedtest .

Maybe that should be better articulated in the UI.
Normally I’d expect to right-click on a folder and then create a subfolder.
