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)

    Users can create a mess with hierarchical directories too. I prefer a tagging system with search functionality built in to cortana and natural language processing

    Very much looking forward to this new feature. Getting very desperate now to clean up my long list of dashboards. Hopefully something like an expand and collapse button is coming

    Combining Chart Types and Adding a Second Axis will be a good feature to add. For financial data analysis and sales vrs growth or sales ($) vrs Forecast (%) is really necessary... we need to compare $$$$ vrs %%% in a single graphic.

    Thanks... your videos are really good, clears and specific :)

    With more dashboards been shared across our organisation that area on the left is really busy.
    Move the reports & datasets section to another tab (or at least combine their menu options).

    For dashboards folders would be good.....infact why not have a Power BI dashboard to mange our dashboards ( a tile for each dashboard or even hieararchy of dashboards) a bit like a visual folder with top level hierarchy of dashboards.

    Please allow multi-select along as part of this so we can easily move/remove dashboards.

    I have 50+ irrelevant dashboards on my homepage from other parts of the company right now. I gave up on deleting them since I have to do it one by one.

    This is absolutely a must have feature. I am with PowerBI for 3 weeks and have been trying to organise the BI content since last week, just realised that it does not allow me to create label or folder and organise the existing content by either drag- and-drop or copy/paste. I would like to have folders mapping the business units, e.g. marketing folder/label for keeping all the marketing reports/dashboards and so forth.
