But if enough people provide feedback, maybe Adobe will change their minds.

I wholeheartedly agree with Tomas. PLEASE add the ability to sync collection sets, as the folder hierarchy makes all the difference when trying to find the right projects if you have years of photos like I do. PLEASE!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic: Collection set structure lost on Lightroom mobile.

"Creating Collection Sets from Folders"  is a very welcome new feature on Lightroom Classic 7.2, but there's one important thing missing, unfortunately:  The newly created nested Collection Set only maintains its structure on Lightroom desktop;  if shared to Lightroom Mobile, the structure disappears on all synched mobile devices.  I hope Adobe fixes that soon.

I have a number of collection sets that I would like to sync to mobile and work within that structure one my iPad Pro. It is tedious, to individually sync dozens of collections inside a set, then have them appear on mobile as individual collections, rather than part of a set. This is one of a few issues that has me thinking that LR CC for Mobile isn’t ready for pro users.

Don't forget to vote for this request :)

FYI (maybe you know it) but in LR Classic, it is possible to drag folders into collections to create collections based (and named) as the folders :)
A huge timesaver for the sync function. Still waiting for better sync features but they won't be devlopped on LR Classic.

+1 from my side. This seems to be such an obvious feature. As recommended I use collection sets to organize my photos and is annoying having to move collections manually after they have been syncrhonized.

Basically Folders in LR mobile are the same as Collectoion Sets in LR Classic. It would be great if it will be possible to sync them.
