Show collection and folder ownership of an item in list view

It would be great to see the list of collection an item is in when listing.
We’re using organizations, and a nested list of collections grouped by customer. For every customer we have we will have a Firewall item, but in the full list view (or in the parent) I will see many Firewall’s! It would be great to know that item in which collection is included.

It would be a very useful improvement for organizations.

As more of our users start using Bitwarden, the experience with Collections is getting degraded because this exact reason.

I’m having hundreds items in a dozens collections.
I’d like to see the collections the item is contained in above the item name. This gives some context to the items and disambiguates an item called Administrator in a collection databaseX from serverY.

Here’s a little illustration:


We migrated the entire company from KeePass and are now having lots of entries with the same name, as almost every development team has his own “Admin”, “Test” or “DB User”.

It is critical for us to be able to distinguish between those entries, without having to prefix every entry with the collection name.

It would be nice if the item lists would display the full entry path, like this: “MyCollection/MySubCollection/My Entry”

I’d like to see this shown in the Chrome extension as well, maybe as bubbles on the entry or have all entries listed under the collections they are apart of.

People don’t always name items well when adding them to a shared collection, so it would be very convenient to have the collection name displayed next to the item to help me “contextualize” it when selecting from a list. I’d even be more-or-less satisfied if this was just the tooltip on the “shared” icon…


Feature name

Show the Folder or Collection that an Item belongs to

Feature function

When searching for an item or selecting an item in Favourites, there’s no way to see where the item actually lives, either in a collection or folder. Since I have dozens of each it’s a really annoying omission coming from a KeepassXC user.

Why can’t you just open the item and look? Personally, I think this feature is unnecessary and would just add clutter to the search results.

Actually, I had no idea this information was visible when you edit an item until now.
Still, it’s bad UX to have to edit each item in search to locate it. There is already a summary at the bottom with the password history and updated info, what’s wrong with displaying the folder/collection here.

  • Show shared collections names for item directly in list without additional clicks

Feature function

At now shared items are indicated only via “Share” icon next to name, and that’s all. So we can’t quckly understand for which collection each item is shared (see the real collections names).

And even after click on the one item in popup window we didn’t see the shared collections list too!

For view list of collections, to which the needed item is shared, we must use separate “Collections” menu item, where we see the editable form, in which can by negligence (occasional mouse click) change sharing settings!

Please provide the way to readonly view list of collections for each item in item details page, and if this will be also available on items list - this will be best!


I would like to request a fundamental feature: Be able to see the organization/collection/folder to which a entry belongs to, when I use the search, check the item list or edit an item (obviously on all clients, since it is missing everywhere).

This because when a user have multiple collections and is part of multiple organizations it happens very often that there are the same entries in different organizations/collections/folders and the user don’t know which is the right one he/she is searching.

Edit item windows is exaclty the same on all four entries, excep that the folder is shown:

This feature request already exists here:

Sorry, I missed it since I first thought that it’s missing only in the search results and then saw it’s missing everywhere. Can you merge this if possible?

For this special task we have a Trey :wink:
And this is how it’s done: @tgreer : Merge, please.



Looks like my life: Expectations meet reality.

Is there a way to see which collection an item belongs to? Currently, I would have to click Edit on each and every item to see which collection it belongs, rather than just clicking on an item.

The more Organizations I create the more I have a problem identifiying collections.

For example I have one organization per customer - in each there’s a “network” collection, a “server” collection and so on…

In all UIs I see my collections and there I will always find multiple “Networks” and so on. To make things easier I think a basic option to always show “Organization/Collection” in all lists would be great.

New user as of today. So far, very impressed!

Windows 10 desktop app.

When single-clicking on an entry in my vault, the information that loads into the panel on the right does not show the folder location of the entry. If you click edit it does show the field with the folder location.

It would be handy to see what folder an item is in without having to hit edit.

Would love this little enhancement too.
Maybe something like that:
