Customize Elements Explorer structure
Allow the ability to create a custom folder structure to organize project elements within the Element Repository. This will be helpful for cases where there are many elements on one page, or other more beneficial orgs for elements.  This should be an alternative and additional view for the element repository, retaining the option to see elements organized in current view.

I think this would prove beneficial. Another thing around the element repo that I have found on a Mobile-project, is that renaming an element to a 'test friendly' name doesn't rename all instances of where that element is used in test cases automatically...? Am I missing something or just not supported?

Our company is managing web apps using a JavaScript panel-based framework, which means the base page URL stays the same within the entire application. This means all of the elements are heaped in one pile.

Just another use case where folders/alternate organization would be EXTREMELY useful (especially the ability to shrink/expand as needed like with pages).

This would be extremely beneficial when managing large element maps.

This presents a very large issue when dealing with silverlight apps.  All objects recorded in a silverlight application are grouped under the "SilverlightApps" grouping.  If the ability to either create folders at this level, OR the ability to record a silverlight "page" object (ex: the <login basetype="Page> element in the DOM) that will group all child objects that appear under that object in the DOM, would greatly help with creating tests.

Is "Customize Elements Explorer structure" more useful title for this request?
