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)

Would be a crucial useful feature to have at least one more level of hierarchy e.g. for main workspaces:


Finance

Operations

Marketing


That contain sub-workspace


Operations - Inventory

Operations - Assets

Operations - Regions

The ability to # or tag reports with certain key words that indicates the report is centred around a particular process or persona would be helpful as well. For example in the Power BI Hub beside Endorsement, Sensitivity etc there should be a column that says Tags where report owners can use certain key words that will allow end users to filter and sort by.

Are there any updates to this idea? We are currently reviewing whether to move to PBI Online and this will cause us issues with the number of reports we are using.

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)
