    I think there needs to be a way to organise characters, for sure, but there may well be a better way to do it than folders.

    I don't have any bright ideas on that front myself right now though.

    Being able to access all of my characters via a filter is really handy and needs to stay, so when I am thinking, "I tested that on a fighter character a while back" I can filter to just fighter characters.

    I use a Chrome Extension to help with this:

    I think the most important is to differentiate between active and inactive characters.

    As a DM - this would be great to organize characters I've built for specific campaigns/story arcs.

    As a player - this would be great to be able organize copies of a single that were made each time before leveling in order to track decisions made over time (or even planning future leveling decisions).

    I'd imagine that folders would be easier than using tags (the other thing that I think would be a sensible solution).

    Tags like gmail would be helpful to allow a character to be classified in multiple ways that folders would not.  Just having a way to SORT would be helpful.

    If nothing else, just let us alphabetically sort characters.

    I'm glad someone else has suggested this and that I checked before posting the suggestion myself as I too would love to see something like this.

    I am not a DM but I am constantly trying out new builds and character idea's.  I often build characters out to level 20 and then make duplicates to see how the build could work at different levels, or make duplicates with slight changes to see how they compare.  Having several versions of the same characters makes the 'My Characters' page really confusing.  Character folders or some sort or something to facilitate this would be a massive help and I can't imagine it would a massive amount of work to implement though I am no developer.

    YES PLEASE, gods, I have so many NPC's I wanna make but I don't wanna clutter up my character pile anymore
    also if you could make files in files, so you can group NPC'S by campaign (if your running multiple) or family/guild/ect

    Is this still planned? Because I have done quite a bit of googling and it seems it used to be on the roadmap but has disappeared. I was thinking that the searching functionality that has been added may have been what they ended up doing but it very obviously isn't folders.

    Hopefully it can still be done and hopefully not in too long since the extension that always gets mentioned in regards to this is discontinued.

    Evan Messenlien: The DDB roadmap (https://ddb.ac/feature-roadmap) has just been restructured to display info in a way that's more helpful to users and easier for other staff to update - something not being on there doesn't mean it's no longer planned, just that it's not something planned for the next quarter or two.

    See the update to this post for more info: https://www.dndbeyond.com/forums/d-d-beyond-general/general-discussion/30993-d-d-beyond-feature-roadmap?comment=1
