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)

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!

currently there is not provision to create folders inside workspaces.All the reports will be lying on the workspaces and we cannot do anykind of seggregation.

I hav to create reports to several clients with several branchs so will be helpfull to have inside the WorkSaces(APPs) subApps. like a file directory. So I could have the company report in the main APP and in the sub APPS the branchs or events or departments.

It will be really good if you can create sub workspaces within a workspaces . This will make it so much easier to identify the exact report that you are looking for. For example, we could create a workspaces called ICT and in that group we can create sub workspaces like ICT Service Helpdesk, Development and perhaps create further subgroups within these subgroups if you have to. It's same principle of creating a folder on desktop and in there you can create several subfolders and in those you can create further subfolders.

Folder Structures required to manage the Power BI Reports.
Otherwise it's difficult to manage the "n" number of reports in a Workspace.
Sub-folders are also required to maintain.
