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)

March 2022 Update: This is in our plans, no timeline as of yet but we are working on it

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

This would be a great feature this idea was posted on 2015. 6 years on and still no change. This feature would make life easier for all power bi developers,

If PBI dashboards can only be 1 page vs. Tableau dashboards which consist of multiple 'sheets,' this can lead to a proliferation of dashboards. There should be some way to create a folder structure w/i the app workspace so that dashboards and other content can be organized functionally - finance, sales & marketing, IT, etc.

We will stick to Power BI Report Server until this functionality is available.

We are considering building a folder structure in SharePoint and embed the PowerBI Reports. It would be such a relief to have this feature in the powerBI service.
