Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com
RIght now, on powerbi.com, there is no ability to organize reports, dashboards, etc into folders. If you have a lot of content or users, this gets messy quickly.
Please add the ability to organize into folders (and secure those folders separately)
Thank you all for the feedback since our last update. We’re working on building a new navigation experience to allow authors to customize a folder-like structure for all the contents within Power BI Apps. Stay tuned!
When is this likely to happen?, Tableau has had sub folders with folder level security for some time.
Tumbleweeds... This had better be the best folder system we've ever seen on any platform...

Any Progress on this? This is such an important feature and how come this feature is delayed so much?
Greg Philps commented
Hierarchies of folders for dashboards, reports, and datasets would provide great benefits (and more self-service) for users by giving them a familiar interface.

Please provide an update as this is will help our end users find the reports they are looking for without scrolling through a long list.
Hi Microsoft, I learnt that you wanted to make PBI a unified platform for both self-service and Enterprise BI. This feature is one of those that are basic, but long overdue for making PBI an Enterprise BI tool.
Actually a useful idea, but instead we get rounded corners on charts. Come on Microsoft, put one of your interns on this..

Folders will help me organize content based on environment/data source. currently my work-spaces looks messy.

I agree - when is this feature coming. It's been a long time now. Thanks.

Why did Power BI take a step back comparing to all competitors and... Reporting Services?! Without folder structures and security based on the hierarchy of logical containers Power BI is constantly challenged by security fellows from IT teams in the enterprises. Not to mention that with folders we could clean the mess we currently have in our Power BI workspaces... C'mon, Microsoft, it's time to deliver this feature to Power BI.
are there any uodates from your side on the release of this functionality?
We're looking froward hearing good news.

an update on this Feature would be great - as we are planning on creating lots of reports for the whole Organisation in Power BI we will need to have the ability to structure the reports.

Hi Nikhil - going on 9 months since the last update...and 3.5 years since the initial ask. Could you please give us a status update on when a folder-like experience (with fine grained security control) is coming to the Power BI service? We (as all enterprise users) need this feature desperately.
John Nevin commented
Yes, still waiting for this, and true (complete) export to excel. This is a deal breaker
This is really important at Enterprise level solution. Hope to see new navigation soon!

Hello Nikhil, is there any information available on how this 'folder-like' structure will work? We are in the report/dashboard distribution design phase of our Power BI roll-out and this is key.
Thanks in advance!
Echo the others - update requested please.
