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)

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.

This is much needed feature, a folder structure to categorize reports in a workspace! It's basic and necessary.

Not sure how to edit the idea submitted, but the sample I did isnt showing properly, hence the comment. Also, this way, users can just expand collapse the folder structure to see what they have access to.

 


  • Org Root Folder

    • Standard

      • Systems Folder

        • Workspaces





    • Clients

      • Workspaces
