Feature request: Nested folder structure in Project

Hello everyone!

I wanted to discuss an idea regarding file and folder organization in Figma. Recently, Figma has been asking for feedback on the ease of finding files and folders, and I’ve been giving it some thought. I believe that implementing a more robust nesting file and folder structure, similar to popular cloud storage services like Google Drive and OneDrive, could greatly benefit the Figma community.

Imagine being able to create a folder inside a project folder, and then create additional folders within that one, allowing for a deeper level of organization. This would provide users with a more intuitive and efficient way to manage their files and projects within Figma.

I understand that the benefits of this idea for Figma’s business may need to be further explored, but I’m interested in sharing this suggestion with Figma’s product managers. Could you please advise me on the best way to get in touch with them and communicate this idea effectively?

Thank you all for your input!


I voted but just wanted to second this opinion as well.

We have a couple “Projects” that house all of our figma files. One “Project” is actually figJam and Figma files for hosting team meetings, etc.

I’d like to be able to group all of the templates we use in a folder in the project, and put older previous meeting figjam files in an “archived” folder.

This would help navigate a lot more!


I fully support this idea! I think it would be useful to add functionality to Figma that would allow users to organize their projects more effectively. Currently, many users struggle with navigating their projects. For example, when working on multiple projects, it can be difficult to keep track of where a specific design element is or where certain information is located. Therefore, I believe it would be beneficial to add a file management system to Figma, so users can easily find the information they need within their projects and efficiently organize their work.

Agreed, I have two markets to address so whilst both products are in the same vertical (Project) and share a design system & many local components, their UX/UI iterations, comms, regulatory approvals are all separate so it’d be nice to be able to file them under US / UK folders rather than name each folder UK MVP, US MVP etc.
