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!
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.
I don't believe it. Microsoft, really? You really think there are no databases with tens of thousands of tables in a single schema? Well known old-fashioned Dynamics apps, IFS-like Oracle-based ERPs, intensively developed SAP BW databases almost ALWAYS have these numbers of objects! It is a shame to force people to use dirty workarounds like duplicating queries, writing SQLs or creating dedicated schemas with views just to pass a limitation of poorly designed BI tool. Shame!
We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.
At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.
You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh
We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!

Thanks everyone for your support and votes! We’re working on enabling commenting for dashboards and reports in the Power BI service soon. Stay tuned.
We are currently working on the support to re-open pbix files from desktop.
I would say the same is about reports - I don't see a way to effectively maintain (edit) the reports because I need the original .pbix / .xlsx file. Instead you could allow to open published datasets and reports in Power BI Desktop and Excel.
Hi everyone. There are some really interesting ideas in this thread, thanks for your vocal support about it! We’ll consider it for the future along with other suggestions and plans. Thanks!
