Folders/Bins for File Management!
Basic file management doesn't exist in Audition like it does in every other Adobe software. The ability to add folders and place files inside those folders when working inside Audition would be HUGE, just like you can in Premiere and After Effects. This is a must have organizational feature that has always been missing.
Unfortunately, I need to change the status of this feature request. While we anticipated being able to share the new Projects feature in our Public Beta release, for which Bins were a component, the realities of the pandemic and related business priorities required the Audition team to focus efforts on other ongoing projects. At this time, I cannot provide an estimated date when Bins or related organizational features may be introduced to the Audition session format.

Too big to fail ...

They said they're working on it.

WHERE ARE THE BINS ALREADY?
We are happy to share that the team has started looking at bins functionality - one of the most requested feature - for Audition. While we chalk out the detailed workflows we have few questions for you. It will be great if you can respond to a small survey here https://forms.office.com/r/ca0dKj34WT
Looking forward to you responses!

Sounds like the Audition team should take someone from the Premiere or AE team out to lunch to pick their brains on how to implement bins. Admittedly, I'm not a programmer, but it doesn't seem like rocket science seeing that *everything on the bloody planet has bins*.

Any update on bins? I'll add my vote to the calls - workflow on big projects? phew! it's tough
Dear Adobe, stop Bullsh*tting us here!
Kevin Lawrence commented
It's simple. Either the code is such a convoluted mess that it requires a major tear down to integrate one of the single most fundamental operations of any computer/software entity, or the priority is not being put on this. COVID isn't a realistic excuse, as audition and other adobe products have received numerous updates (some quite extensive) during this time.
File & folder management needs to be made a priority. Enough with the noise.
Alternatively, be honest, and tell us why it really has not been addressed. You've had MORE than enough YEARS to do something.

Just started using Audition as it comes with CC and it's absolutely wild to me that simple folders aren't a thing. It's just a purely visual divider in the files panel, it doesn't need to change the way the program operates. There can't be a technical reason why a visual change isn't possible unless the code base is such a tangled disaster that it may as well be rewritten from scratch.
Already looking for an alternative for my audio needs.
Audition has been around 20 years and this is what they have to show.
Why bother? Maybe they want it to go way...

Now that the Remix feature is available in Premiere, there really aren’t many reasons for us to use Audition, and the lack of bins ultimately makes it a chore to do so. I suspect we’ll see Audition go the way of Speedgrade and hopefully have any remaining features ported over to Premiere.
Incompetent team full of lame excuses.
Go down the hall to AE, PS and Premiere and see how it's done...
Who is the leader? This team has a substandard product.
Folders.... So basic.

Just implement Bins. Not as larger "Project features" or a "Workflow Initiative" release, just sneak it in as what other programmers here have noted should be an incredibly simple coding job. Sneak it in the next patch update, not a major release. (If incorporating bins is somehow much more difficult than we are all giving it credit for, just please explain that to us. Transparency will help us understand the difficulty and lay off the Adobe team on this a bit. For the millions of dollars that we all pay as subscribers each month for this product, introducing the archaic feature of "folders" does not seem too much to ask for. Any kind of explanation for why "folders" is a project that takes years upon years to introduce would go a long way to customer satisfaction.)
4th April 2018!?
Adobe and its lazy and incompetent enough teams, across all applications, not being able to add a crucial, integral and notoriously missing media organisation and management "option" in under four years.
In don't want to use the F word here, but you would deserve it.
Nuff said. Shame on you.
Damian Riddell commented
Unbelievable. Another year goes by and yet the most basic organizational tool needed by users has still not been addressed.
The Audition team should be fired if they can't do this simple task. 4 years and nothing.
It's a shame because ALL the other Adobe products have this "feature". This team is probably waiting to install wheels on their cars...
Sounds harsh? Poor little babies can't make any code... 4 years.

Another year older, and nothing has happened.
I have produced seven hours of sound interview in some 10 sessions, three tracks. They are all called traks 1.*** to 3.***. What do you propose me to do?
Joel Park commented
Create the bin/folder option in the File window, please. This should obviously be part of the program as in AE and Premiere!? Once I get more than 20 files or so, the visual organization gets very convoluted. Update this immediately, please!
Andreas Urra commented
As this is such a basic and essential functionality, please put it as a high priority. It is sorely missing.
Dave Edwards commented
Any update on this?
I was expecting this to be in the latest MAJOR release but that hardly has anything in it to be considered a major release.
