Shell improvements

Folders in workspaces

Estimated release timeline: Preview in Q1 2024

Introducing folders in the workspace allows you to better organize and find items. The preview of this feature provides the organizational capabilities of folders. Subsequent updates address folder-related permission management scenarios.

Parent-child items in workspaces

Estimated release timeline: Q4 2023

Some Fabric items have children items such as Lakehouse, Data Warehouse, etc. This feature enables you to easily view the parent-child items relationship in workspace UI and also makes the items list cleaner.

Persistent filters in workspaces

Estimated release timeline: Q1 2024

Currently, the workspace filters aren't persistent. You must reapply filters each time upon returning to the workspace. We heard your feedback and plan to enable persistent filters for improved navigation.

Customizable left navigation bar

Estimated release timeline: Q1 2024

We learned from you that the frequently used capabilities vary for everyone based on their roles and job to be done during a certain period time. To better improve productivity, we plan to make the left navigation bar customizable. You can pin or unpin an entry point on the left navigation bar according to your own preferences.
