    Will there be an ability to add sub-categories in the future? We have 4-5 main divisions of the company and then each division has general areas of functionality. We used this type of structure to group the reports in SSRS so we didn't have 50 reports sitting in 1 folder.

    Also is/will there be a way to lock report readers into a category or categories?

    Hi,

    For the initial version we have decided to implement a simpler approach for organizing the reports: only in categories. We think that in most cases this will be a sufficient and a more convenient way for the users to find the reports. However, if there is enough interest in adding sub-categories we will do our best to implement this feature as well. You can log it in the Report Server Feedback portal so that other people can vote for it too.

    A possible workaround for your scenario is to prefix the group names with the names (initials) of the divisions. Afterwards you can allow members of each division to be able to work only with the reports in their category through the User Management view. The best approach will be to create a specific role for each division with permissions for a specific category and then add users to that role.
