In 2007 aaronbertrand put in a feedback article to allow folder grouping for SQL Agent jobs. This was closed with a note saying you were looking into an overall solution for SSMS. That was 6 years ago.
The SQL Agent jobs are hard to manage, we have jobs created by Replication, MDW & report server, then we add our jobs and the job list gets messier than my kids bedroom. Folders have always been a good solution for sorting out this sort of mess. Even if you just created a folder for each job category under the Job node as you have sort of done with the proxy node would help.

The enhancements to SQL server have been great in the past 10 years. The SQL agent could really do with some attention.

We took a look at this DCR along with several others. Unfortunately triaging it against other critical DCRs I do not think we would get to investigate and implement this in the near future, so we decided not to proceed with this DCR in the next SQL Server release.
However, we have taken note of this internally, and when we revisit this functionality in the future, we will try and get this implemented.

Thanks for writing to Microsoft.
