Please put Categories back in the sidebar

From my usage so far, categories are way more useful in the sidebar

    I second this motion. AgileBits seems to have moved the vaults from under the Account dropdown where it was in 1P7 and put them where Categories used to be in the sidebar. And now Categories is a drop down filter over the list. I suppose this may be useful for corporate users who may setup and use lots of vaults. But for us family users this is by no means an improvement. Rarely am I switching between vaults. But I'm routinely trying to navigate to Secure Notes, Credit Cards, Bank Accounts, etc. What used to take a single click now takes two.

  • +1 single account, many categories.

    +1 for me too. I really REALLY used that and I’d love to have it back.

    Yes Categories in sidebar for me too. Also preferred in when "open in new (floating) window" was more accessible (maybe a button where the Feedback button is now?)

  • +1 ... the sidebar is where the categories belong.
