How can we improve Power BI?

power bi desktop files from one drive

i have a power bi desktop file in One Drive that contains queries connected to on premise MySQL database. I have another Excel workbook in One Drive that contains the exact same Power queries.

If i import the Excel workbook to Power BI, then the Power BI reports can refresh automatically whenever I update the Excel workbook in One Drive.

However, when I import the Power BI desktop file to Power BI, the report cannot be refreshed. It would throw a personal gateway error but i'm not using personal gateway!

Can you fix this so that refreshing of Power BI desktop files in One Drive work like Excel workbooks in One Drive?
