Hide non-Power BI workspaces from left menu
I'm using Power BI and some other O365 services (e-mail, yammer etc.). A few days ago suddenly all my Yammer groups appeared as workspaces in Power BI menu. It's very annoying, I need only one or two workspaces for sharing my PBI reports. Searching for them in the long list is time consuming.
There should be a simple way to switch between only those workspaces, which one needs for Power BI report publishing.

This got me today. We have a Power BI workspace named <Company> Analytics. But we are storing the files for it's dataflows in a OneDrive workspace name "Analytics". The OneDrive group should be purely backend for the dataflows.
I accidentally published my datasets to the OneDrive workspace and couldn't figure out why my datasets weren't showing up in the "correct" workspace. Almost opened a support ticket on it.
It got me and I'm supposed to know what I'm doing.
I am facing the same problem in our enterprise. We want to have governance over workspace creation and also want to use workspaces for internal charging of our Power BI cost.
Now with users undermining our governance with O365 groups created via teams we lose all governance :-(
Is there a fix for this on any roadmap?

It's absolutely necessary for management purposes
Ian Macmillan commented
Surely this is small dev effort for a big win. So many good things happening in PBI to be let down by the cluttering up of an extremely prominent interface!
Victor Uland commented
Come on fixt this now!

Please Microsoft! This is a absolutely basic feature! What yours perspective?
Please take care of this! We only have 2 PBI workspaces for hosting reports but all SharePoint/Team sites are displayed in the listing. This is so annoying and confusing. Can believe this has been an issue for 2+ years :(
I don't see how this will be functional in a real environment where people will be part of dozens and perhaps even hundreds of groups. We end up with all these blank workspaces that are empty, cluttering up PowerBI for no reason and now users can't find what they need within PowerBI. Please fix this
Any change on this?
Today I've noticed my rarely uses teams in Ms teams are automatically hidden. When will this be deployed in Power Bi?
We are seeing the same and it is flooding our business users with SharePoint pages that have nothing to do with our Power BI deployment. Strongly suggest that you consider allowing context specific settings that allow us to gate information as appropriate to our user communities. We should be able to customize user displays so that only Power Bi Workspaces are visible.
Would also be okay with at least a favorites list...this is ridiculous. (Or hide/group any workspaces with no reports)

Dear god I would love to just have a favourites list in my workspace area, between teams, app workspaces, everything else, it's a swamp
Daniel Davis commented
Too. Much. Clutter

This becomes even more important as a broader use of the Office 365 suíte keeps increasing. More and more groups are created for other purposes, but the Power BI workspaces list keeps growing with no neeed.
Please can we can an update / roadmap for this request. Like the other commentors - my PBI is now completely polluted with irrelevant workspaces. Many Thanks!
Agreed!!! You should be able to hide workspaces that are not PowerBI related. It is extremely annoying and you can easily delete or leave groups you didn't intend to by trying to 'clean up' your view. Even in Teams you can 'favorite' some and the rest can be hidden under 'More'. If you need the others or want to elevate a workspace you can. I have 19 workspaces listed and only 3 are used with PowerBI. Others are attached to Yammer groups, Teams, etc. Please resolved ASAP. PS I do like that you can create workspaces in P-BI that don't create groups - such a relief. Thanks for that.
It is a nightmare navigate trough such huge list of non-PowerBi workspace.
Just needed "hide" option.

I have to agree with this. While the OPTION to have all O365 groups unified across Yammer, Planner, Teams, SharePoint and other applications is a great feature, sometimes we JUST want to create something isolated for ONE or a few applications.
The current experience is extremely poor. We log-in into Power BI and see all sorts of stuff that has nothing to do with our scope in Power BI. In fact a user might delete a workspace in Power BI not knowingly that is in fact the same as deleting the O365 group.
Ideally the O365 team (not the Power BI team) should have an advanced setting for each O365 group in which we can switch in which applications the group will be available.
OR AT THE VERY LEAST, the Power BI group should give us the option to add existing groups as workspaces or not, like the Anonymous user below said on September 06, 2017 21:40.
I would like it if any 'workspaces' with no published reports were hidden by default. I'm part of a large organisation using O365 - as Yammer, Planner, Teams etc is becoming more popular, the list of 'workspaces' in Power BI is becoming almost unmanageable.
