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)

This would be extremely helpful for organization.

RE: Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com

Agreed. I shared this on a similar post, but this has been an idea (link) on the Power BI board for a long time (2015). When only talking about Power BI objects (Dataflow, Dataset, Report, Dashboard), this has already been tricky, but Fabric introduces a BUNCH of new objects, and having the ability to organize them is essential.


Would be nice if tagging/metadata fields were also made available, but I'll take what I can get.

Any update? Been in the pipeline for about a year as 'planned'? It would be a massive improvement on the BI platform.

It would be great to be able to add folders within workspaces to better manage workspaces that have several reports or are used for testing- I would be able to move things into a "archived" or "test completed" folder to track before moving to our corporate workspaces. Similarly, being able to add seperate permission levels by report or group in the workspace app would be a helpful improvement.

When will this feature be? already frustrates the wait and the lack of interest
