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

we re currently working on our governance and this restriction is slowing down our process

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This would be awsome. Microsoft should investigate ways to reuse powerbi artifacts as much as possible.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Once again, Microsoft's shortsighted development makes no sense. I seriously wonder if MS employees use the tools they create. PLEASE let us make multiple apps per workspace!

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Hello Microsoft team!

As Rui Romano and others, stated, my organization is also experiencing great limitation on the content sharing options. I have summarized my issues in the following blog post:

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

I completely agree with this feature as it would greatly simply our report deployment capabilities for multiple groups using the same workspace.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This is a crucial requirement for our enterprise deployment model. I really need to use 'Power BI as a Service' as a data source for a different set of reports (to avoid duplicating my .pbix file) but these reports will be distributed to a different security (AD) group, so will need to be in a separate workspace, unless I can create multiple Apps from the same workspace.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This is a feature that is really needed in order to share different reports with different groups while still being able to use a single workspace for different datasets/reports.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This is really needed to ensure we share different content with different groups of users and still have a single space for development.
