Navigate in test cycle by folder

Now navigation through the test run is awful, it's very difficult to work. The best navigation solution is made in testrail. I would like to have something like this here, or at least be able to quickly navigate through folders or tags..

    We are using Zephyr Scale 8.0.0.

    The ability to collapse all is very much needed on the player page https://support.smartbear.com/zephyr-scale-server/docs/_images/test-cycles/run-02.png

    Аnd everything I wrote refers to this page

    Thanks Andrey,

    For the folders, are you using the latest version of the server app? There have been some changes to the folder system (you can see them in the notes here https://support.smartbear.com/zephyr-scale-server/docs/release-notes/v7.html).

    You can use the top panel to collapse all the folders and search for a folder name there.

    For filtering with the test player (where you execute the tests), you'd like to be able to filter by tags?

    I am sorry for the long answer.

    1) In my opinion, the best solution is to use the folder navigation as in test cases, but leave the right side unchanged.

    2) It's also nice to add the ability to collapse all folders.

    3) And in this task, I wrote what needs to be added on the page https://support.smartbear.com/zephyr-scale-server/docs/_images/test-cycles/run-05.png the ability to filter by tags like hear https://support.smartbear.com/zephyr-scale-server/docs/_images/test-cycles/cyc-09.png

    If you add point 2 to the interface, then this will be enough and will greatly simplify life.

    Hi Andrey,

    I'm unable to progress this idea until I have a better understanding. I'll move it to another status for now and await your response.

    Hey Andrey,

    To be clear, you'd like to be able to filter test cases or cycles by folder/tags? You've said "to find the desired folder". Is the case that you have many folders and it's time consuming to find the right one for your test cases? Or do you want to select test cases/cycles for multiple folders at once?

    I appreciate the extra info. It'll help me to plan better for the improvement in the future.
