The master project page just lists all the projects that have been entered. A method to sort these projects, either grouping similar projects or just the option to sort alphabetically would be useful when someone works on multiple projects at a time,.

Have a toggle at the top for manual, latest edited, or alphabetical sorting. Sometimes I want to look at a project without it being auto-sorted to the top.
I'd also like to be able to create folders because I have several different series and it would make it easier to select the book I want to work on.
Yes please! I desperately want to be able to group all of my drafts of a single project together in a folder.

I'd love to be able to sort projects alphabetically, just to make things easier to find

Auto-sorting should at least not put a project to the top that I only looked at :-)
I would honestly love some way of grouping projects and also choosing to sort them in a way that isn't necessarily last clicked on. Folders for series' or similar types of works would be helpful. Right now I do multiple books in one project for a series, which definitely works! but having other options would also be nice.
Would LOVE to be able to consolidate some of the stories into projects to minimize clutter on the home page. Also ability to move drafts off the main page would be GREAT
Something like a shelf or collections feature to group projects would be extremely helpful.
I'd love to see the ability to mark projects completed, planning, outlining, editing, etc. And different folders for projects that are part of a series.
Having a folder to add series projects grouped into one folder, or a different folder to have notes and planning information would be amazing!
Yes!! I have multiple "worlds" under multiple pennames under construction. Being able to group each series together would be very helpful.
Yes please! I'd love to group my projects and be able to sort their order intentionally. Occasionally I click back into old stories to refresh my memory and then they move up to the top of the list! Frustrating.
Be able to organize the homepage, rearrange the books in specific order etc.
a feature to pin or favorite/etc most-visited projects to the top of the list on the home page would be amazing for users like me with 1000000000 projects!

A way to organise projects ie - by alphabetical order. A way add to separate folders for people with multiple projects at once. ie. - a folder for things that have been published, or a folder you can name yourself ie - "short stories".

Being able to add folders/subfolders would be super useful! I’ve very much got ADHD brain going when I’m writing, so being able to say “I know that project was a short story in the editing stage” and then go to the relevant folders helps me navigate my brain. Also, it’d be great if we could add tags to projects for filtering! Especially for folks like me who have a nice little hoard of projects.
Sorting options would be great, but I’d love to be able to create folders and group projects that way as well.
Would love the ability to group or stack projects together, almost like folders or something. Then it could make the process of scrolling through projects easier, especially as projects grow in number.
I would definitely like folders for organizational purposes. I have been housing series in a single project which seems to work reasonably well; however, most of my worlds have multiple projects, and the ability to even add tags to a project and then filter on that would be a boon.
For some data points that might be of use: I have 64 projects in dabble. A few will likely get culled, several have multiple works. Some have things that need to be sorted to other places. (such as projects done for Nanowrimo.) So there will be some reduction in that; however, there will also be more stories, projects, and worlds getting added. Organization is a bit of a priority. For my publishing I organize by world, then series, then individual manuscript, again, just as a data point.
