Remove or increase data refresh timeout
Power BI currently times out after 30 minutes. This interval is too short even for modest data sizes. We connect to CRM and have 1000s of records we are analysing. It can sometimes take 1 hour+ to refresh all the data

With larger data sets from cubes and tabular models I get this a lot. This should be a setting.

I get this error even on a modest SQL server database (but, admittedly, complex SQL-statements against that database). This works fine for exactly the same queries in PowerPivot for Excel but gives a timeout in PowerBI Desktop. This needs to be fixed before we can make any switch to PowerBI!
the connection has timed out solution
This is imperative as users use larger data sets through slower connectors such as TeraData and Oracle.

This limitation is forcing me to go back to Tableau. My main data sources on Azure have grown to a size that the data refreshes timeout in Power BI. I don't have this problem with the Tableau versions of my reports. This needs to be addressed before I can recommend a switch to Power BI.
