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?

This should be a high priority item quite a mess with all the collections otherwise...

I use common collection names in lightroom and syncing these with lightroom mobile is confusing because all the collections have the same name, but different nesting under collection sets with unique names.

It would be great if collection set structures could be synced instead of just collections. So I could have "Birding Trips (collection set) -> Shorebirds (collection set) -> All Birds (collection) / Rare Birds (collection) / Good Shots (collection)". I would like to sync the "Birding Trips" collection set and then be able to see "All birds" within that set.

We need a tool to synchronize the collection sets of lightroom classic to lightroom mobile.

When syncing collections from LR to LR mobile, these collections end up in one single container (a single "folder") in LR mobile. This happens even when the original collections in LR lives in collection sets. Obviously, this doesn ́t scale well. In time, we will end up with a long list of collections, and we need to do a lot of scrolling to find the collection we want.

The solution to this is to include this hierarchical level in LR mobile, and have LR sync the collection set along with the collection. (I ́m not suggesting that we should be able to sync entire sets, just that this information is synced along when syncing a given collection.)
