Copy a dataset along with descriptions and folders

Hi,

 

I have two pbix files and I want to copy all the measures, descriptions, folders and a dataset from one pbix file to the other.

 

I know I can use Tabular Editor for measures and Power Query for the sole dataset, however, I can't find a way to copy all the folders and descriptions.

 

Is there a way to do it?

Thanks

Hi @tslowik131 

do you mean description in Model- Properties - Description? if yes, I doubt whether such function is supported in Power BI....

Hi @tslowik131 

I've tested and it worked OK, see pictures bellow,

select the groups you want, right click and hit copy,

right click and hit paste in another PBI file,

result (folders and descriptions are still there)

Hi,

 

It seems that ALM Toolkit/PBI does not support this solution yet:
