Organize Parameter Fields in Display Folders

It would be great to add something similar to the "Display Folder" functionality that currently exists for fields, such that one could organize or group Field Parameters (and even tables while you're at it!).
Field Paramters are amazingly useful, and so I'm finding that I am creating many of them within the same report. They show up in the data model view similar to tables, which means that there is no way to visually organize them in the list- of the "Fields" pane, and I find I'm spending a lot of time searching for the right one. Display folders would fix it!

I came up with a sort of solution for this...adding it here in case it is helpful to others...Field parameters can be directly edited in the DAX, and so the 'table' can be created with a large number of rows, then additional columns can be added, which allow you to group the fields (rows in the DAX table)in whatever way you like.  Then in the report, you can add slicers or filters to each report or visual to choose which part(s) of the field parameter should be active. This allows you to condense how many field parameter tables show up in the navigation and the fields pane.

Hi @bgreiner 

Display folders are applicable for individual table. Field parameter also created as DAX table so you can't group all the field parameter tables into one display folders. 

Thanks

Exactly! I meant to add this as a suggestion, because it's a feature I would love to have, but it looks like I posted in the wrong forum. Thanks for your reply!
