Allow folders in Pages

Greetings all.
Conversations in the community unthread after 100 comments, making the conversation difficult to follow, and official comments hard to find. For this reason we're posting our most recent update here:

We know this is an important topic to many. We appreciate all of the use cases (pros/cons) that have been presented and the ideas for solutions. We are working toward a longer range strategy that we envision solving many of the struggles you've expressed here. We do not have an immediate solution. Stay plugged into the Canvas Ideas space to watch this strategy unfold (beginning with Assignments 2.0)

The Files section of Canvas allows folders for organizing files. Pages does not. Why the awful inconsistency in the user interface? I currently have 30+ pages that I've created in - all in flat directory structure. I'd like to be able to organize them, you know, like Files and stuff I have on my computer.

Folder to organize pages.

Oh my goodness! I am working on a very robust Canvas course, and as with every other course I've designed, the page navigation for my own building purposes is SO CHALLENGING. What I have resorted to is assigning an emoji to each section so that it will at least sort by emoji so I can find things, but this is a critical missing link in Canvas for those of us who have significant content by way of articles, instructional pages, resources, etc. We need a more streamlined way to organize pages...I can't tell you the amount of time wasted scrolling through pages to find what I need for hyperlinking purposes. thank you!

Our other LMS platform support the creation of sub-folders! Requesting this feature to be available in Canvas too. Thanks!

How is it that this comment from 2016, saying that this idea of folders in Pages is in a long term strategy, has not been implemented yet?  This seems like it is being ignored, especially since there must be code already written to put files into folders.  What not pages?

I have over 200 pages in a very complex content intensive course.  It is very frustrating scanning through that list alphabetically!
