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)

RE: Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com

When we are in a workspace and there are a lot of artifacts (Model, Lakehouse, Spark job, dataset, notebook, etc.), it becomes difficult to organize them. Can we have folders and sub folders inside a workspace? This would be useful when there are multiple projects in the same workspace.

Yes, a way of sorting workspace into a folder structure becomes an even more desired feature facing the new item types in the workspace, as Ryan Cox mentioned earlier. Dear Administrator, please provide an update on this and put additional pressure on introducing this feature.

Let me get this straight, in 2017 it was in the "upcoming roadmap" but then, as of 2022 - 5 years later - it is not in the timeline?


How do you determine what is in the roadmap?

So we now have Fabric, which introduces additional items in workspaces such as pipelines and dataflows, yet still no ability to organise content into folders.

As simple as this is, this would help user experience significantly. Please move this up the roadmap!

RE: Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com

Any update on this? This feature would be SO helpful as we end up needing to create new workspaces for sub groups - which can be a lot of workspaces. For Power BI to be a proper "enterprise tool", folder structures within workspaces w/security is a must have. This should be top of the enhancement list - Please post an update with timeline.

group by type, expandable list would also work

I'm using filter now

but I can't find and access my favorites , that would be nice to see avorites and most access at the top / quick access
