RIght now, on powerbi.com, there is no ability to organize reports, dashboards, etc into folders. If you have a lot of content or users, this gets messy quickly.

Please add the ability to organize into folders (and secure those folders separately)

agreed, this issue is so past due... this is a key reason for some reluctance on part of corp users to switch to pbi from other BI analytics platforms

It's a basic very important feature for large organizations that uses a large number of reports.
It's been Under Review since March 2021, We need to know if this feature will be out soon or not.

Indeed a necessary much needed functionality to the application (PBI) especially where it is expected that there will be numerous report in production and some gone live and some still work in progress, beta mode. Folders management is a minimal function to help users / designers/ creators deep at work.

Imagine a workspace with hundreds of reports and no way to organise them. It will get messy very quickly. I cannot believe this feature was not available from day one.

Ability organize dashboards, reports and dataset in hierarchy of site (department can share or create multiple sites per LOB) - projects (across team / departments) - folders structure (this is already voted)

RE: Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com

I've read somewhere that a user can be a part of a maximum of a 1000 workspaces. Currently, if you view your available workspaces, it just gives you a list of workspaces where you can search for a specific one. But if you are part of a multitude of workspaces, this can get messy.



What I'm suggesting is to allow the capacity/power bi admins to categorize created workspaces into folders/subfolders so that when end users view their available workspaces, it is neatly organized. 



Sample:



Org Root Folder

     - Standard

            - Systems Folder

                  - Workspaces

     - Clients

            - Workspaces

It was already answered by a Microsoft employee that said it was planned for sometime this year. I want to know if this feature is rolling out soon!

To better manage reports inside a workspace, make it easier to access and find them.
Please add ability to create folder and subfolders inside a Workspace.

Also make is possible to hide/disable folder.

Thanks!
