[Connections] [List] Ability to group connections together (pre-defined and custom group)
From Private Preview user feedback.
We currently use other tools to send PS/CMD commands to groups of machines simultaneously. Would love if WAC would allow us to group hosts for this purpose.

My main reference is Remote Desktop Manager Free (http://remotedesktopmanager.com) and this happens because it's one place for "everything remote" and the ability to divide the computers/websites/ftp/etc by groups making it easy to manage.
create folders to group the different department workstation together and server's together also when i share the link with my colleague he must import the workstation's again and start the process again (me and my colleague are in the same group in active directory and i import the group in WAC)
Add ability to categorized servers in Folder tree plus to append credential per folder instead of session

Devices need to be in Groups or Categories. Something like Remote Desktop Connection Manager. Too difficult if it is all in one list.
Please add membership in connection group as attribute in import functionality to enable automation of import process into the correct group.
How are folders not a day one basic function?
Stefan Halasek commented
i like it
my idea was to add a WAC powershell module and some commandos for the WAC like
get-ADcomputers -filter asyoulike | add-WACcomputer -credentials $User -Password $PW
for example, i think you get it.
[Feature request] create groups
it would be helpfull if groups could be created, to separate environments with different runas accouns. Like for internal and DMZ servers

A folder structure would be great to sort servers by role or projects. It would also be easier to navigate through the list of servers when you have a lot of them. If possible please, add also a button to exports the folder structure so we can distribute already customized console.
Group Servers and computers allowing for group actions like restarts. I'm primarily thinking this would be useful for lab environments but I'm sure it would be useful elsewhere.
Folders would be really, really, helpful!
I'd like to be able to create groups of servers rather than a flat listing I need to scroll or search thru. I have imported ~200 servers and finding the right one could be easier. similar to how the RDCMan tool allows for nesting of servers.

It would be great if Honolulu had a functionality to create groups so servevers can be organized by customer and/or site. Currently if you have multiple customers you will need to connect separately to each customers’ server running Honolulu Gateway. It would be great if for example we ran Honolulu Gateway in datacenter and have Honolulu Gateway server from each customer connect to it. This way it would be possible to manage all customers from one location.
Tile groups would be nice.
Folders sounds very nice. Vote for that :)

Some kind of way to create and group similar servers like a folder hierarchy.

This would be ideal so that we can use RBAC and Active Directory security groups to grant access to pre-defined server collections.
I'd like to see the server manager view laid out like server manger in the client; Automatically grouped by function, with high level detail.
Likewise with the cluster views.

This would be useful as it would help replace our current Remote Desktop Management client usage.
