RE: Support Display Folders for Table Objects

Agreed! When a model has many tables it would be helpful to reduce visual clutter and group them. Or even change the sort order. I ran into a situation where we wanted to name tables business friendly names but there were so many tables users couldn't find the fact table where all the measures were located because alphabetically it was more than half way down the list. For an enterprise reusable model you might have several groups using it for self service analytics grouping tables they could collapse expand groups of tables based on the use case for their analysis.

Makes you wonder why all this effort is spent on AI when so many basic functions are not being implemented that people have actually asked for. Microsoft should really be concentrating on what there use based needs

Surprised to see that such a simple navigation functionality is not already there. Happy to know that this is under review. Its very important as our audience is unable to use the reports effectively due to messed up tables list.

RE: Support Display Folders for Table Objects

This would be very useful to organize tables based on topics on robust datasets. Is there any update on if/when this will be available?

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.
