Support Display Folders for Table Objects and not just columns

Thanks, we are currently looking at supporting this, no timelines yet though.

RE: Support Display Folders for Table Objects

In addition to the feature described in the title and the comments, it would be amazing if we had full flexibility in organising the columns in folders. For example, we would be able to put field A from table A and field B from table B into the same folder "Folder", without the subfolders "Table A" and "Table B" being displayed.

This will help us organise tables and group tables based on functions or themes.

Folders for lakehouse tables is a MUST. I hope this is included by GA with Fabric.

Nearly 5 years since this feature was asked for...this would help tremendously for organizing data for end users.

RE: Support Display Folders for Table Objects

I would like to add my support for this feature. It is very cumbersome when combining data from various sources, some of which may have similar names, to try to find the table you are looking for. I am currently working on a project where I am using data from 3 datasets and after bringing them in, the tables are all jumbled together in the Report View.

RE: Support Display Folders for Table Objects

This feature would help to find the tables specifically based on folder name.
