Hi, @carpenterbrice 

When you talk about the display folders, do you mean the folders that contain columns and measures in your dataset?

If so, I’ve done some tests and I found that it’s displayed normally in my case.

Hi, @carpenterbrice 

According to your sample picture, it seems that you used the display folders with hierarchy in your desktop, so I’ve also created some display folders with hierarchy in my pbix file to make a test. But the display folders still displayed correctly in my place.

@v-robertq-msft i agree on new desktop files that i do not see any issues. However i still had the same issue with the desktop file that was saved locally and worked on about 15 mintues before the upgrade. So i know the folders were there and working, then i opened the file right after the upgrade and they were gone.

 

I have since redownloaded the desktop file from the powerbi service where it was published. when i open that file the folders are now there on the local desktop application running the April 2021 version.

 

So not sure what happend, but interesting as i saw notes in the previous update around display folder bugs being worked on.
