How can we improve Power BI?

create multiple apps from same workspace

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.

        We need this feature, because some dashboard need to be duplicate in a lot of apps, more thant that, it will help the security, because I don't want all user to see the same reports.

        This feature is crucial to our plans for a global self-service architecture in Power BI. Being a global conglomerate with significant SOD ("segregation of duty") and compliance requirements, we have literally thousands of datasets and multiple use cases for the majority of them. Having an App Workspace for each App multiplies our Datasets and therefore the strain on our Premium and Gateway environments by a factor of at least 4. It also creates the risk of redundant and asynchronous Datasets as 15-plus people try to mold the same Dataset to their particular questions.

        We will be first in the line when this is ready to go.

        Absolutely necessary. I am having this problem while creating slightly different views to various departments in our organization.

        Need this functionality!! Our CIO couldn't believe this didn't exist already

        This would be a huge addition. For us we have multiple groups who only need to see their reports but senior management needs to be able to review the key points from all groups in one dashboard. As stated in other comments this means we have to manage multiple datasets/reports of the same thing.

        Agree with the below; the current situation leaves room for unnecessary human error i.e. if the base dataset is updated but not pushed to all workspaces.

        If we're building enterprise-level dataset(s) and applications they should be coming from the one source; especially when using a premium capacity, this feels so counter-intuitive.

        Tried using apps for the first time today and was bummed out to see that 'Apps' (plural) actually means 'group of reports against a singular workspace'.

        I was hoping to use one workspace, create a number of apps, and then tie the access rules to the apps. But thats not possible. Seems the intent is to create a number of workspaces and then add people to multiple workspaces.

        At the moment Apps is simply not a good enough replacement for content packs.

        Yep, had would be really good to be able to create multiple app from the same workspace.

        Please! It is a something vital to make the reports process much more effiicient.

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

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

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

        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.
