How can we improve Power BI?

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)

    When can we expect this feature to be released? This is a major pain point for our organization and prevents us from fully utilizing the solution.

    This feature is very needed. We have been using Cognos for our reporting needs and now we are wanting to migrate to Power BI. In order for us to successfully migrate to Power BI, we need to be able to create folder structures that accommodate different functional areas, projects, and applications.

    Organization of contents(folders or otherwise) and access control should be a priority for the success of this product. Look forward to help here

    Hi Nikhil,

    We are waiting for this since long, is there any tentative time line that we are looking when this can be released?

    This feature is very much needed, please add this feature to be more efficient to manage reports and access for large contents of reporting.

    Thank you, Nikhil! Please stay committed to following through this time, unlike in summer 2016.

    The folder concepts needs to be placed in Workspace as well. It is becoming unmanageable to look for reports. As an administrator and publisher of reports. Organization is key in the Workspace.

    Yes, please allow us to organize reports and panels and not only apps. This is important when the development is centralized at the IT department and the company has too many users.

    Would be great for this to work for all workspaces and not just apps. Please bear this in mind in your design and implementation.

    Any update on this? If Apps was your solution then it's not really a solution.... The main problem is that if we want to have a report in two folders (or apps as it is now) we have to republish the data source and report in both place - taking up value memory and it also makes a mission to manage.

    Please update us whether this is actually going to happen. Even just one level of folders would help

    Has this been forgotten about? I've now got a long unorganised list of dashboards and it's getting harder to find anything.

    Any update on this? This request was initially made almost 3 years ago...this is desperately needed functionality. We're new to Power BI, I completely can not understand how we can possibly deploy without the ability to group things in folders.
