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.

    This should definitely be there. We have multiple set of users and ideally we would want each set of users to have their own app. Supposing we have 30 different user groups , if each of them starts adding their own content to the app then its a mess for everyone. Also just imagine if we have to create 30 workspaces if we don't have multiple apps supported.

    any idea on when the functionality will be available on using a dataset across workspaces?

    Sometimes you are working on Power BI and you come across something that seems so obvious that you are suprised that it is not in the program. This is one of those things. Yes there is row level security and yes there are multiple ways to manage permissions. However, the easiest way to rationalize about what is share to whom is by creating packages of charts (for example Apps) and creating an app for a specific group of users. Usually this is all based on the same data. Creatng multiple apps from the same workspace is something that is easy and intuitive to use. It just makes sense. Please add this to a future release. Overall the authorization capabilites of Power BI need to improve big time. All solutions to authorization currently are too hacky for my taste.

    Sorry about this but I don't understand how the dataset across workspaces fixes the problem...…
    We currently have different groups per workspace that we cannot throw together due to the fact that they see some of the same reports and some are different

    We would want 1 workspace with all reports and then add reports to the app, thus you will only see the 6 or 7 reports you are linked to, not all 40 in that workspace

    Do not see how dataset across workspaces will solve this....

    Discovering datasets across workspaces is not going to cut it. We don't want to have to maintain the same reports in multiple workspaces just so the workspaces can be aligned with the many groups we have in our businesses. E.g. We would like to have different dashboards, in the same workspace, released to separate groups and which access different visualisations of the same reports. Please consider more seriously what your customers are asking for rather than trying for an easier solution which might solve part of the problem for some of the us.

    For anyone who has developed a robust model to use in the creation of multiple reports for different segments of their userbase, this is a must-have. Duplicating a central model n number of times for a given number of apps is just nonsensical.

    This is a must have and a huge time saver on top not having to maintain the same datasets across workspaces!

  • Anil Taneeru commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It is a must have feature which will reduce the number of workspaces. Please make it happen.Thanks

    This is really desired to manage permission's for reports in same workspace via App

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Id love this feature - much easier handling then having large amout of work spaces

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This would be a much easier way to manage permissions. One problem that would need to be addressed at the same time is the interactions with SharePoint, which are not nice to begin with.

    This functionality would really bring a huge value to our very large organisation with multiple lines of business with similar themes. Please consider this functionality as soon as possible.

    Essential to allow proper ad-hoc reporting from withing a premium capacity. At the moment I would have to ask our admins to grant us another workspace for any ad-hoc or contract specific reports we want to share.

    I would think this would be mandatory, we're debating moving away from Power BI because this feature is missing.
