Lightroom CC: Share folders

In Lightroom CC I can only share albums. I like this option, but I need it also for folders. At the moment I export all photos for my clients to Dropbox. They have permission to see specific folder with the folders (albums) for events inside.

For example:

Client 1
- Event 1
- Event 2
- Event 3

Client 2
- Event 4
- Event 5

Client 3
- Event 1
- Event 4

When I have the option to share folders in Lightroom I can cancel my activity in Dropbox, because in Lightroom CC I can change something on the photos an my clients will see this change without extra export. For this it would be also necessary to have one photo in more than one album.

Same here. I have Lightroom just for personal use but I also want to share more events (albums) with specific people. I do not understand  why it is not possible to share Folders. If you have something against sharing folders, let us create albums inside another albums we cal share! 

It is also impossible to share multiple selected albums. So If you want to share more events, you have to send them one by one like an idiot.

This should be in feature request category by the way.

Agreed, ideally I’d like to have multiple collaborative Catalogs but will be voting for this nevertheless!

So annoying that you can't do this. It is the missing link at the moment that is stopping me from fully using Lightroom CC,

This would be an AMAZING feature. Even just one tier of folder sharing would be enough. If I could share a whole folder called summer 2018, and then have sub-albums for each session of camp (I run a summer camp) parents would LOVE it.

Is this in consideration process already? This should have been implemented already.

All feature requests are under consideration, but Adobe doesn't announce their plans for new features until they're ready to ship, so no clues on timescales or whether it'll make the cut anytime soon.

I’ll add my comment here to hopefully give this some more juice. This is a great feature that I’d love to see implemented.

Yes this feature would be great. I share photos of my boys with their dad, and rather than have to create lots of new links each time I send him photos. It would be great for him to just have the one link to a folder, and I can add albums to that.

Yes, this feature would be very useful. As an event photographer, it would be great to be able to share each of the events from a multi-day conference.

This should be combined with making the Share Album to Web feature a bit more robust, so that it can replace my SmugMug site without the quantity limitations of Adobe Portfolio or having to use the social-focused Behance.
