How can we improve Power BI?

Refresh data upon change to the report

When the pbix file is updated (published via Get Data) or whenever a new pbix overwrites a current report, the dataset should be refreshed.

What happens currently is that the report may be weeks out of data when republished, and this old data replaces current data on apps (even without republishing). Instead, the dataset should always be refreshed when the pbix source changes.

        Everytime I publish a report, as long as the report is scheduled, it forces an "on demand" refresh at publication time.

        what scenario are you talking about?
