Create multiple apps from same workspace infect from same Dataset without replicating the dataset multiple times. only option we have now is to update the app and only one app per workspace can be created which a kind of restrict the workspace usability. If we can create multiple apps share it with different users without creating multiple workspace ... means same dataset no dataset replication, will save the storage as well.

May 2024 update: We are working on creating a separate app as an artifact which will release in the coming months. thank you all for the feedback.
March 2022 update: we plan to have a private preview soon and hopefully release to the public in July

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Really need this feature. Entered the PBI Premium and we have to create tons of workspaces. Really dissapointing.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

As others have mentioned the inability to do this causes an explosion of workspaces and duplication of data sets. We'd prefer to have large, less numerous workspaces to manage but this limitation explodes the number of workspaces to be equal to the number of unique audiences (one or several people at a time) instead of one for each functional area or department using other means to control access.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Really need this. Otherwise will need to maintain multiple version of same data set. Not good :(

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Curious to see that this kind of thing already exists in other bi products

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This is becoming increasingly important as our organization embraces the premium service so our casual users don't need a Power BI Pro license. Publishing Apps to these users is the most reliable way of sharing content with them.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

I am interested for this feature too.

Currently I have a workspace for my reports based on one sales cube. But I have different publics, one report is for french people, an other report for Hong Kong, etc.
So I wanted to create an app for France and an other for Hong Kong, but I can't. The only way I see to solve the problem is to create two workspaces, that is not user friendly and less maintainable.

Definitly need to create more than one apps per workspace.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Highly support this idea. Without this the Apps and even the Premium product is not useful for us!

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This is much needed functionality - our business has gone down the path of Premium which was great from a licensing point of view, but the inability to create multiple apps from the same workspace has made it unfit for purpose.
