Lightroom mobile: Ability to create Collection Sets for Photo Workflow Perfection

Lightroom mobile is so amazing, but once I get all of my photos in there, I am going to need to have the ability to organize my Collections into Collection Sets on Lightroom mobile just like I do in Lightroom for Desktop.

Is that feature coming?

Thanks!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LIGHTROOM: Collection sets and dual membership when syncing to iPad.

I can put a synched collection into a collection set on Mac but set does not appear on iPad. Need either that or folder capability on iPad.

If I put the same photo into two different collections does it use extra room on iPad or cloud?

Hello

Are any plans to handle hierarchal collections in lr mobile / web?

I just started to used lr mobile and web including synchronizing collections. It runs smooths and is very useful.
But I miss the possibility of have collection sets in collections sets which I use a lot in my local lightroom, otherwise it will quickly become difficult to keep a structure and overview.

Best regards

Will this ever be implemented? Been a couple of years since original post.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LR Mobile: Please implement collection folders ASAP.

LR Mobile is fantastic and works well except that the sync'd collections are flat and not arranged into folders / collection sets. I think it hinders the whole experience. Having collection folders is one of the foundations of my workflow and not being able to see these in LR Mobile is frustrating to say the least. 

Just to be clear, I'd like to go into LR Mobile and see a collections in a folder hierarchy / sets the way they are on my main computer.

I appreciate people are asking for Smart collections being able to sync and I can understand why this could be a difficult thing to achieve but folders should be quite straight forward right?

Thanks for listening.

Completely agree with everybody requesting this feature.  I used SmugMug for several years.  They have a folder/subfolder concept that syncs with Lightroom.

So, has Adobe responded to this request at all?

I "Tweeted" @Lightroom yesterday asking when the feature would be implemented. I got a reply from Adobe Customer Care pointing me to this thread suggesting I voted - which I already did last year. So we need to keep sharing and getting people to vote, I guess. I couldn't work out where this "Idea" is on their priority list but more votes would move it up presumably?

Lack of this feature drives me crazy! :)

Adobe, please add this feature.  I have far too many collections with similar names, not a problem on the Mac because they are in distinct collection sets, but a huge problem on iOS devices.  I need to keep a good fraction of my photos available in my pocket, or my briefcase.

Do you actually use your own products?  This is an obvious failing.

Adobe, please add this. As we continue to pay each month the mess just gets worse and worse as more and more photos are added!

The desktop application allows you to create collection sets, however these sets are not synced with our mobile app. This creates for hundreds of collections, creating a very messy initial screen.

Please add the ability to create collection sets in mobile, as well as manually arrange the order of the collections and collection sets to ensure we can find our pictures quickly and easily!

I know dozens of others who also want this to be an option as we continue to pay each month for the subscription but the problem only gets worse as we add more photos.

Why do we have to vote for it? It's been a basic hierarchy feature available since Windows 3.1 - Files -> Sub-Folders -> Folders. Its been 3 years since this request was made! Come on Adobe!

Agree, my vote landed here AGES ago, and it'd be great to have the same structure ability as on the PC.

+1 for this. Ridiculous that it's still not possible.

Same here. I currently only have 7 months worth of photos in Lightroom but it's quickly becoming impossible to use LR mobile for any kind of organising task. Collection sets should sync - it's a basic feature that should have been there since the start).

I would add to this that smart collections should sync too, just like normal collections.

Come on, Adobe, please!
