Make the Essential Graphics interface options flexible & robust (Folders)
make the Essential Graphics browser flexible: sorting, icon or text, import .mogrt folders, mort folder organizing on the desktop will appea
Mr. Horse makes a really rad free plug-in called Premiere Composer that comes with a ton of free Mogrts, but most importantly has a panel that organizes your content, including Mogrts into a more traditional folder structure.
Mr. Horse is an incredible 3rd-party developer and has a long track record of making complimentary tools for After Effects and Premiere Pro.
Hope this helps!
Thank you all for the helpful comments and votes here. This really helps us understand user needs and priorities.
This particular topic has included a lot of different ideas and requests over the years and has been hard to follow over time. Also, the Under Review status assigned to it may be a little misleading. As a result, we are removing that label at this time. This doesn't mean that we don't care about all the user requests in this area. On the contrary, we want to keep hearing your voices so that we can deliver the best possible features in the future.
For now, I'd like to let anyone who is reading know about a few existing methods to help you organize your mogrts:
(1) Export or copy your mogrts to be inside of CC Libraries. These can be filtered and viewed like folders in the EGP and they are also searchable from within the EGP Browse panel.
(2) Use "Manage Additional Folders" which can accessed from the EGP spanner menu. You can add, remove and sort local and network folders from within this dialog and then view and filter them from within the EGP Browse tab.
(3) There is a free plugin call Premiere Composer which will give you some really nice UI to help you organize and use mogrts.
Regarding that 3rd option, I'll let my colleague Dacia provide some additional info about it including a link to a page where you can preview and download it if you want.

This was 2018 and we're STILL waiting on this?
Hi Mara, thanks for your comment. Would you please file a separate user voice post and give a little more information about the issue you are facing? Also please send a screenshot which shows the problem. This way we can focus on your specific issue. Thanks! Annika

I have to re-do all my essential graphics every time I reopen my project.

I want folders in my essential graphics pane please.
Emailing you as well... can you share a screenshot or video of your issue?
Are you using a Mogrt that was made in Premiere Pro or After Effects?
If you're using a title made natively in Premiere, is it possible that your logo has gone offline?
Would you also mind sharing your Mogrt?
Hopefully we can get you back on track soon!
Thanks so much,

I just updated and now my business logo graphic has disappeared from my time line. It was there and now its gone. The word logo has replaced it in white. Any suggestions?
........ and we're still waiting since April 28th 2018 to get folders back in Premiere Pro's Essential Graphics panel (EGP).
Sadly the EGP is often slow and clunky and awkward to navigate. Also, why are there no simple ways to create Poster Thumbnail frames for animations or quick ways to scrub and preview animations.
Come on Adobe. Making a useful and efficient EGP that actually works is long, long overdue.....your paying customers are waiting. Sadly so are your customer's clients also waiting and it's costing us money and our reputations!

I saw someone here mention Motion Factory (www.motionfactory.io). Thank you! It solves the Essential Graphics Panel's (EGP) issues:
1. The template names displayed are whatever file names you give to your files! This means you can easily batch rename your downloaded MOGRT templates to relevant names using a tool such a Better File Rename, rather than have to rename your files one by one by one inside the EGP!
2. FOLDERS!!!!!!! The Motion Factory panel allows you to create, rename and remove folders to organize your files. The interface itself only allows you to do this on the root level, so you can't create sub-folders, HOWEVER, Motion Factory allows you to import your entire MOGRT library at once, with subfolders upon subfolders, respecting whatever folder structure you have on your hard drive!!!
Adobe sure could learn a thing or two from the folks over at Motion Factory! For now, this is the tool I'm going to use since the Essential Graphics panel is utter garbage in comparison.

I only started using the EGP now, so I'm surprised to see the request to bring back folders. This means there used to be folders but now they're gone? What?!!! That's my #1 gripe with the EGP, the lack of any way to organize templates in bins/folders. Why would Adobe ever remove this uber essential feature??
Bring back folders to the Essential Graphics Browser! Make Premiere great again!
hi, i can not select and import .mogrt file to after effect 2019. ( I don't have "Browse button. )

When I acquire a template pack for a particular project. It gets difficult to navigate/ browse them, as all the files mixed up in the panel. It will be nice to have an option to organize and view those templates by folder, making the browsing and decision making faster.
I suggest logging separate requests rather than adding them to the comments.
Adobe has the ability to do the things worse each time. Instead to do things easier you do more difficult. You can not install folders in Essential graphics, you have to do it one by one. Each version of the past is better that the new ones. Your case is similar as Benjamin Button.
Make PR able to read subfolders, not just root mogrt files
