Ability to move/copy report/dashboards between Group Workspaces
Be able to copy or move reports and dashboards between Group Workspaces, removing the need to re-publish a report and/or rebuild a dashboard.
Microsoft, please listen to your community of developers! There is an obvious need for a re-think regarding report sharing and collaboration for Power BI. Who are we serving here, ourselves or our users?
This is a must!
Similar to comments below, this seems like such a fundamental piece of the product it's hard to believe it doesn't exist. I'd rather this before any visualization as the amount of maintenance is onerous if you have more than a few reports and try to adhere to a typical dev/test/prod cycle
Just spent half a day making a complex report in my workspace, and realized I can't copy it to our "App group". I didn't even consider such a fundamental feature would not exist.

Does this really require a vote ? it's like having a word document stored in one folder and the only way to move/copy it to another folder is by doing it again.
This should be a basic feature.

Adding a new App Workspace and performing another publish from Power BI Desktop at least presents the option to select a workspace to publish to - solving the dataset & report 'move' problem. This is a small step in the right direction, but only for people using Power BI Desktop and still does not address Dashboards or other customisations already done to objects in Power BI Service.
It would be so much easier (and intuitive) to move content using a similar mechanism as selecting objects for a new content pack. Heck, it might even help to allow importing a content pack into a new App Workspace, but that also seems to be blocked.
For Power BI to take off in any meaningful sense in a structured business environment 'small' things like this need to be in the product - but that list of missing basics are unfortunately still very long in PBI.
SORT IT OUT MICROSOFT. This product is NOT enterprise grade.

Anyone from MS? I believe this is a long overdue request.
Still no update on this requirement ? dont know why these basic functionality not being reviewed :-(
I've got a work around not sure if it will help.
If you download the desktop version and re-publish (Using the publish button in the top right) the report you can select which dashboard you wish to publish it too.
You could download any report you want to share and then publish it to the group you need?
Hope it helps,

This is a significant gap in the governance and deployment of PowerBI. While it is feasible to work through a dev/qa/uat/prod sequence with reports, the same is not true of dashboards.

It is really nasty to rebuild a dashboard everytime I publish a report to another workspace. This is I think a low hanging fruit for Microsoft to make users happy.

We have the same story: we would like to create reports on our team which are displayed in multiple dashboards (on different teams/cross-team dashboards) or display data from partners in our dashboards and keep it based on the same underlying report so that the data stays in sync across the org and the report is managed by the owning team.

Could Microsoft comment what was the reason of NOT giving this feature at the moment?
This is an absolute requirement and must be implemented soon.
Highly desired option. It's a management / rework nightmare at the moment.
Share around dashboards should be one of top priorty
this is maintenance nightmare for us. We deserately need this feature to make things much easier and more efficient for us.
