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.

This feature is definitely required for our enterprise-wide deployment. We need to ability to publish different contents to different groups from the same datasets.
Troy Erickson commented
Two major features are needed here. First, the ability to create multiple apps from one workspace. Second, the ability to create a dashboard the pulls visuals from reports that reside in different workspaces.
This is essential for reuse within large organizations.
Scott A commented
This should be a priority for Microsoft--large enterprise customers need this type of flexibility.
without this whats the point of apps... Really hope this feature comes asap, even 2-3 apps would be OK and then more apps for a higher price, but 1 app per workspace makes that 1 app kindof redundant
We are able to re-use one golden dataset across different apps, as I commented on one of Matt Arlington's blogs. This is different from using multiple apps to one workspace to centralize development, but solves part of the problem.
In my scenario I am making this Golden Dataset available to use in multiple App Workspaces, to maximize the application of “single source of truth”. This is done by using Sharepoint to house the Golden Dataset (PBIX), then in each of the App Workspaces use Get Data –> Get Files –> Sharepoint Teamsites, then point to where the PBIX file is uploaded.
The setup is pretty straightforward, using Sharepoint as the cloud storage for PBIX files, and by using the "Get Files from Sharepoint" method above, in each App Workspace, the Golden Dataset is now available for use in each App Workspace, and subsequently production Apps. Future updates in the Golden Dataset (data refresh, measures, relationships) will reflect to each App Workspace.

Really need to be able to create multiple apps per workspace

Thought on this....
Assuming the 1:1 relationship between the Workspace and the App, one option could be to allow the creation of multiple "Views" within the App... Each of such "Views" would have two components:
1) A selection (filter) of which available objects in the App are included.. It would be like the current "Included in App" switch that determines if a Workspace object is included in the App, but in this case to determine if the App object is included in the "View", and
2) Access permissions (entire organization or specific users or groups)
So rather than having the access permissions set at the App level like now, the proposal would be to shift the permissions to the App "Views"...
Maybe in that way, the architecture behind Workspaces and Apps could remain the same...Only security would be needed to be enhanced....
We really need this to effectively use Apps.
we re currently working on our governance and this restriction is slowing down our process
would be great to have some new distribution features in the coming releases
Raphael Nash commented
This would be awsome. Microsoft should investigate ways to reuse powerbi artifacts as much as possible.
This would be excellent.
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!
Chris Melton commented
I completely agree with this feature as it would greatly simply our report deployment capabilities for multiple groups using the 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:
Rui Romano commented
This is a major drawback in the "App Deployment Model" vs "Content Pack Deployment Model". I prefer Apps to Content Packs, but there's no way right now to distribute a diferent sets of reports all based on the same dataset.
Susie Bentley commented
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.
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.
This is really needed to ensure we share different content with different groups of users and still have a single space for development.
Anthony Hipperson commented
This would be really useful, with one app per workspace I may as well just give my users access to the workspace
We definitely need this
