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 a great feature this idea was posted on 2015. 6 years on and still no change. This feature would make life easier for all power bi developers,

If PBI dashboards can only be 1 page vs. Tableau dashboards which consist of multiple 'sheets,' this can lead to a proliferation of dashboards. There should be some way to create a folder structure w/i the app workspace so that dashboards and other content can be organized functionally - finance, sales & marketing, IT, etc.

This is much needed feature, a folder structure to categorize reports etc would be lot of help.
Request MS to implement this in upcoming releases.

We will stick to Power BI Report Server until this functionality is available.

We are considering building a folder structure in SharePoint and embed the PowerBI Reports. It would be such a relief to have this feature in the powerBI service.

Desperately needed in our organisation, ideally in conjunction with the publish report to more than one workspace idea

Much needed
I am considering workaround by making a report with list output and hyperlinks, that has the GUIDs/links to all of the reports, which I can maintain a Sharepoint register on... That also enables setting various attributes that consumers can search on
Then users can use that report to navigate (not ideal) or we can consider rolling out the list to dashboards..

Our system currently has 228 reports and we will need additional copies for our development and test tiers.
We will absolutely need to have some form of content organization!
