How can we improve Power BI?

Power Query functions in URL using a web data source under on-premise data gateway

Add the ability to use Power Query functions in the source string not only for the PowerBI Desktop, but also to on-premise data gate
Now It's not supported to type Power Query functions as web URL when we create a web data source under on-premise data gateway

    Perfect! Now we use PowerShell & Windows_Task_Sheduler & JSON_file to get data on current date to PowerBI_Destop for on-premise data gateway updating.
    This is very complicated and strangely on-premise data gateway cannt update data with function in source string..
    Developers, PLEASE, perform this idea
