Power BI will not let me change the name of my outlook subfolders

I have successfully renamed the deleted, inbox, and sent folders however Power BI will not allow me to rename 'inboxSPP008 - ITSA' and 'inboxSPP009 - Repayments' folders which are subfolders from the inbox. 

Please can someone help? I have attached my current dashboard. Thanks image.png

I am afraid I do not know what a work package name is, nor what a filter column is, unless you mean the column you are filtering. You can change data in a column with the Transform/Replace Values feature, then filter, but I don't have enough details to really help. Please don't assume I understand your data. You need to provide samples and clear explanations.

Hi @edhans Yes I want to rename the subfolders within the report. Is this possible?

You are going to have to be more explicit. Power BI cannot rename data. It is a "read only" tool. Any renaming is just renaming what you see in the reports. No source data is ever changed.
