    I had recently posted exactly this suggestion on the forums before finding this feature request system. I have an ongoing Forgotten Realms game where I'm adding customized magic items or spells, and I'm also doing some world-building for a homebrew campaign setting with custom subraces and feats. I don't want to mix the two in any way, but it's getting harder to separate them without some sort of management system.

    As a lover of homebrew, and a DM of multiple pure HB campaigns I have a lot of homebrew content on my account. 

    As a player in a campaign with another homebrew DM, I understand how crazy it can be trying to keep track of things. While on the Character Creation screen, there is no indication at all that a Feat option that's available to my character came from a fellow player, or the new Adventure I just purchased for its options. While I'd love [an otherwise invisible] "(HB)" marker akin to the Unearthed Arcana content, I think what is really required is the suggested feature: Folders.

    We have a Homebrew Collection toggle, at present, which is a massive help when my campaigns are not actively using an item/feat/race. But a dropdown of check boxes for which Campaign I would like to activate/deactivate that HB item in would be stellar.

    Imagine having homebrew collections to browse through similar to steam's workshop collections. Imagine finding a "Middle Earth" homebrew collection, or a "Sci Fi" homebrew collection. Subscribe to the one collection and immediately have all items, races, subclasses, feats, monsters, etc that you need to run a fully functional homebrew campaign in that setting. 

    I feel it would be pretty easy to make custom collections for private use or for sharing in the system. Mash two or three collections together and have a hugely feature rich homebrew system. When you make your own campaign, display a list of all the collections you've created/are subscribed to. Every checkbox you place gets put into the campaign.
