Was folder view removed from the Roku Plex App?

I just noticed that when I watch home videos, the "Folder View" option no longer exists on my TCL Roku TV. I've tried uninstalling, rebooting and reinstalling to see if it was something weird but same result. It's still there on my server, just not in the Roku app. Was it removed or is it just something weird going on with my system?

    I just realized it has to do with the user account. My kids managed user account does not have the folder view option but my admin account does. Is this a bug or is it setting I need to change?

    @tyler4550 this is a server restriction, not the Roku app. If you add any restrictions for the user, then they will not be able to browse by folder.

    @ljunkie Thank you for the reply. Is this something that will be "fixed" in a future release? I can't think of a reason why I wouldn't want my kids to be able to browse by folder. Actually, it makes watching home movies pretty difficult since all 30 years of them are lumped together. If the request has not been made, chalk one up from me - it would be great to have folder view work with restrictions. Thank you!
