Lightroom desktop: Export folders and albums

It would be good if LR could export not just photos, but also albums and folders.

---
In comparison to all other popular photo software, LR shines in many respects, not in the least for managing photos in hierarchies of folders and albums. However, when it comes to exporting, LR only offers export for individual photos, abandoning its own idea of folder/album structure.

When I click a folder with nested folders and albums, I would expect an option like File > "Save folder to...". Or even if we could have a checkbox on the standard "Save to..." dialog to "Export into folders" would save hours of time.

I am under the impression cloud-based Lightroom does not support plugins. Jeffrey also mentions his plugin is for Classic. Am I missing something?

Ah, silly me, no, you're absolutely right. I missed that it was tagged for cloudy.

Reading other requests, e.g. on Gallery and Album sharing, it feels the folder/album hierarchy is more fundamentally missing from all "outgoing" actions. Don't know how to word this for a feature request. Feels more like a change in the design of LR data flow. (Sorry, I'm getting off-topic.)

I really need that to. Export Album hierarchy to folder hierarchy.
