I can't figure out a way to organize our cloud libraries. We are trying to make one library per client and having everything in chronological order can make it really hard to find icons and other elements that could be grouped by category. If we could drag them around to rearrange that would be great, if we could create little groups or folders of them like swatches that would be even better.
my favorite part is adding a new item that matches several that are at the bottom of the list and not being able to put it with those and it is sit by itself at the top of the list. We should be able to click on items and organize them by dragging and dropping like the layers panel works.
but i doubt this will ever happen seeing the last comment about this was almost 5 years ago...

Yeah I feel like Adobe has put TONS of emphasis on something that's woefully underpowered. Can't tell you how many times I want to access an asset without having to create a blank doc for no reason, but that's honestly easier than navigating the Assets web page. Consider creating a version of Bridge, but for graphic designers. And, unlike Bridge, make it useful. Lingo is a great example of an app doing asset management well—having a native application with Adobe integration can only be that much better.

At some point, please allow adding all elements, graphic styles, brushes, gradient fills, pattern fills, etc. to Libraries. Thank you!
As we have built up thousands of individual assets there is no time in the world to go into the back log and now name them individually - I really need a 'order by visually similar' option within a folder of my CC library!
We've got lots of libraries, some of which have thousands of items. Our system is to use one library as a default dumping ground, which we then go through, naming each item with a naming convention and then transferring to whichever library it belongs in. To find stuff, we just search, and it works well like that.
What's more annoying is that there's convenient way to get these files into and out of the cloud en mass, since CC libraries are kept separate from CC files. Also, it would be a lot better if you tag or key-word items rather than just given them really long names to search by, because if they DID let you sync CC files and CC libraries together, you'd then have a mass of files with ridiculously long names...
So yeah, there's definitely room for improvement. I hope they do something because it could be so useful if they decide to implement it properly...
