Converting Classic Workspace to Upgraded Workspace

  • 1.  Converting Classic Workspace to Upgraded Workspace

    Posted Oct 30, 2019 01:05 PM
    Hi ,

    One of the feature which I liked about the upgraded workspace is to share the reports among different workspaces which is only possible if the workspace is created as Upgraded workspace , is there any way or any upcoming feature which can help to move all the earlier Classic workspace to upgraded ones ?

    Thanks,

    Ashhad Shamim

    My understanding is that the only way to upgrade now is to create a new workspace and re-publish all of your reports into that new workspace. If you rename the old workspace first, the new workspace can have the same name.

    This comes with all sorts of limitations and irritations, but it is doable.

    I thought that Admins would have the option to convert "classic" or legacy workspaces to the new experience? Not sure I am correct about that, but thought that somewhere along the line, before the new workspace was GA, the admin(s) had time to convert them?

    Hi @Ashhad Shamim,

    The conversion from old workspace to new workspace was demoed at the recent MS Ignite 2019​.

    So it is a feature that is coming out soon. I'll forward once I find any article on it.

    Thank you,
