Lightroom Classic: Let user know which Synced Collections are Shared publicly

When looking at the long list of my Collections, in Lightroom CC and Lightroom Mobile we have visual indicators which Collections are Shared (there's a text Shared under the name of the Collection), but LR Classic CC does not.

Would be great to have a some kind of visual remark which Synced Collections are also Shared. It's a kind of hard to read that all my 500+ Collections look the same, whether they are Shared publicly or not. At least Synced Collections you can detect from the arrow symbol first on the row, but there's no indicator for Share.

The only way to see which Collections are Shared publicly is to first click one Collection at a time and look at the upper right corner whether a button reads Make Public or Make Private. That's not good enough, we need to be able to see the state on the list as well.

Please add that to make Collection list in LR Classic CC easier to read.

Thanks!

Adobe has said that Lightroom Classic won't get any new sync features, so I'm afraid that is not going to happen.

Isn't this an UI issue – not a new feature?

Maybe so, but like I said, I don't think it's going to happen.

Agreed. I don't think Adobe has any excuse since this doesn't involve syncing any information that isn't already synced - it's purely using existing synced data.

You can find out and change the sharing settings via the Lr web interface. Go to your account on lightroom.adobe.com. Click the globe icon, it will show you all your shared collections.

That doesn't solve an UI issue on LR Classic CC.

And, that doesn't help working with my photos in LR Classic CC when I'm on a webpage in a web browser.
