Hi,

I have many stored sessions.
I think it would be nice and convenient if I could organize them in folders or any such idea.

Thanks,
Shai

I consider this. Maybe if more people ask for this, you are the first one.

I want to be the one to second this request. I have about 50 sessions stored from 5 or 6 different environments. Currently, I preface the server name with the environment name, like "qa: ecomapp01." It would be nice to have folders.

It'd be good to store the sessions as suggested in a folder (default in the winscp directory?). Alternatively in an .ini file, so they can be easily copied to another PC. Copying them from registry is a pain!

the topic is about something different. It was asked to allow organizing sessions in folder, but visually (on login dialog), not physically on disk. You can already store them to an INI file.

I am the third.
It is very useful to have any possibility to organize sessions into the subfolders, groups etc. in the case of many saved sessions.

This would be a great benifit if we can get folder organization and if we can then create shell icons for those folders. We would then be able to drag and drop to folder icon and distribute files to those saved sessions.

Thanks

I understand and appreciate this feature. But would it be possible to create this "shell folder" with multiple stored sessions inside so that if I drop a file on the "folder" it would open multiple sessions and distribute files to all endpoints simultaneously, instead of having to drag and drop for each of the shell icons. Thanks

Sorry, I've missed the plural Smile It should not be difficult to achive that using scripting.

Yes to folders!

Take a look at SecureCRT for a good example on managing sessions.

You can create folders, drag entries between folders, copy an existing session (very nice for many sessions that only have slight differences such as IP address or user).

It will be very usefull to protect the session info (like CuteFtf for instance)

I would like to see a folder organization of sessions too please. Just a simple folder org would help me considerably.
Its a great product, and I use it with about 20 - 30 machines.
I might have to login with 2 different logins - depending on the purpose.

+1

I manage a heck of a lot of machines and without a tree / folder or some kind of logical grouping its become a bit of a nightmare.

Would love to see some structuring options regarding storing the sessions.

FYI, there is a similar request in this thread:

https://WinSCP.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4613

Apparently, this is a desirable feature! Smile
