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)

A simple yet much needed feature.

Yes, this would be really helpful! At the moment we use different workspaces as a workaround. But the growing number of workspaces make it more confusing.

Any Idea when this would be available? We are in the process of setting up workspaces and their security and it would be a huge help to have folders in a workspace with security to organize with.
Thanks!

The ability to organise reports into folders (Like SharePoint) would be useful, as a business, we have several different types of reports on Bi, for example - Reporting to the board, weekly performance reports, operational stats reporting, Marketing reporting etc.. It would be nice to be able to organise these per department for instance when using the same Workspace

If you have many reports, several datasets and dashboards in one work area, it quickly becomes confusing. A folder structure would be good here.

Would be nice to sort all your reports and dashboards in "My Workspace" instead of it being a big mess.
A folder structure to categorize reports etc would be nice.

Folders in workspaces foster hierarchical organization within workspaces. Currently, you can create workspaces but each report is on the same level within those workspaces. You as administrator can't organize them and users that have access to those workspaces have to scroll through multiple reports.

Seems like a very Microsoft feature that folks would use and like!

In Workspace Contents, it would be great to organize reports into folders.

Folders would be a great addition for us.

We are using workspaces to secure and provide content to different user groups, but are missing the ability to organise the content for these users into logical areas, having folders would provide this.

For us moving from another tool into the Power BI product, it was a surprise to not have this as an option.
