When I learned the basics of Maya awhile back, they taught us that we could organize and clean the outliner window with groups. Anyway, it doesn't seem that I can hide multiple objects into one grouping in the Outliner in Blender.

Is there another way of doing this?

    $\begingroup$ If you'd like to have groups directly in the "All Scenes" outliner, see this proposal and upvote it if you agree (that doesn't mean it will happen but more votes=more chances) $\endgroup$ – ChameleonScales Feb 10 '17 at 13:16

Basically you can use Groups and Parenting to organize your scene.

  • Grouped objects are displayed hierarchically in the group view.

  • Parented objects would be displayed hierarchically in the outliner's default view.

enter image description here

See the Outliner Documentation for more detailed information.
