Research Feature - Move files into folder

Either I am being very naive and missing the obvious or the research environment directory does not let you move files into folders. My workaround was to download the notebook and then upload it back to the folder I want to place it in.

For those wondering about this Dan Dunn replied to me and said: "That is correct. It's a feature that has been requested, but we haven't built it yet."

You could try exporting the notebook, then re-importing the notebook into a different folder.

Yeah, that's painful IMO. Being able to sort notebooks into folders would be much appreciated. I'm a neat freak when it comes to my data.

+1 I'd like folders to be implemented for algorithms as well so that we can organize them appropriately.

Hey everyone, we recently started to work on adding the ability to move files into folders in Research. Currently, the plan is to allow you to drag and drop notebooks into directories (one at a time). We know it's currently difficult to keep Research notebooks organized (I'm up to Untitled 71.ipynbwhen I click Create Notebook), so we are hoping that this change will make it easier to organize your work.

Thank you for your feedback and for staying patient with us. There is always a long list of improvements that we want to make to the platform which is why it can take a while before a feature request is implemented. In this instance, the overwhelmingly high number of requests for the feature combined with the fact that we are seeing community members spend more and more time in Research (relative to the IDE) brought the feature to the top of our list.

We will post in this thread once the feature is available.
