Love to be able to flag entire folders in the Lightroom Library module.

I flag individual photographs that I would like to work on, but I'd love to be able to flag entire folders in a way that the flag is visible in the navigator pane. I would most likely flag folders that still had photographs needing work, and "unflag" the folder once all work was completed.

So, anyone out there have a suggestion on how to do something similar? What's your workflow in terms of tracking folders needing work?

Thanks,
Andy

What about color labels? That is a popular request: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

Not really want you want to hear (I'm guessing) but my solution is to hide the Folders side-bar item completely.

Thanks for the thought, John.

That would hide all the folders... I want to see them all, but visually be able to tell which folders I want to take some action on. (In this case, folders that have files that I still need to work on.)

Thanks, though. Appreciation your time.

How about just renaming the folder, e.g. by adding a "!" to the front? That'll also make it float to the top of your folder list.
