  1. Auto refresh option for dashboards

    Enable an auto refresh option for dashboards including platforms such as the Win10 App. We have dashboards on TVs around the business and rely on a chrome extension to refresh the dashboards, it works... could be more professional as you clearly see the page reload. What is the point of a dashboard without the option to auto refresh.

  3. Auto refresh the report

    A PBI report is showing 7*24 hours (Full Screen). Now the data gateway has been finished the refreshing. But the data on the report is not be changed. Looks like it is a static page. I must manual refresh. So it is not automatic. Hope enable the report to auto refresh.

  6. Auto Data Refresh while opening report on SSAS

    Would like to share and know if it is possible to auto refresh the data on Mobile with a refresh data button. Further; if it is possible that the mobile report built on SSAS Cube auto refreshes data while opening. This will be good for end user experience. We know that when the page is pulled down it refreshes the data.

  7. Failed auto-refresh should not cancel the refresh schedule

    Currently if auto-refresh fails, the refresh schedule is disabled meaning IT has to go in and re-enable the schedule for each data connection after any ill-timed service outage. Sadly, the schedule is also disabled silently so unless IT checks in on the dashboard they have no way of knowing refresh is turned off.

    As mentioned before, we’ll still disable refresh if we notice that refresh fails consistently, but this time we’ll send you an email to inform you why we turned off refresh.

  8. Enable Auto page refresh whith SSAS

    please enable "Auto page refresh" and "change detection measure" with SSAS data source, and make it available on report server too

  9. Add a Auto refresh setting in the mobile Power BI app

    Allow each user to set an auto-refresh time interval. Also allow the user to pause the auto-refresh if needed. To date i have not been able to get the reports to refresh automatically. The end users have to manually click the refresh button at the top of the screen. Simply need the app to refresh the report/dashboard based upon the end-user desired frequency in minutes.

  10. Power BI Report Server Auto Refresh

    Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.
    As well as a setting to hide all tool bars so that extensions do not need to be added into url.

  11. Windows 10 App - Auto Refresh Reports

    Hi,

    We use Power BI on our status screens throughout our building. I noticed that the Windows 10 App has been recently released. It would suit our requirements if it had an auto refresh built into the App.

    Thanks,
    James

  12. Dataflow Linked Entities auto-refresh across workspaces

    Right now if you link an entity to a dataflow in a different workspace, it does not auto-refresh like a linked entity in the same workspace. While this could be advantageous in some situation (for example linking to live data and using the linked dataflow to make "official" snapshots), it could also allow data to become stale.

    It would be good to allow users to select if a dataflow should stay in sync across workspaces, as well as being able to break the auto-refresh on in-workspace links.

  13. Auto Refresh Reports

    Automatically refresh reports when a change or refresh is detected on the dataset. There seems to be a disconnect between the two now.

  14. Auto Refresh : Frequency of Auto Refresh should be more than once a day (Allow hourly or multiple times etc.)

    Scenario :

    · I have live events going on different portals (video streaming services)
    · The consumption of all these events captured in my production database as soon as people do any action (video play, video download, bit rate, etc.) on that video.
    · We want to see different statistics in reporting with live refresh of data from sql server as the live event in progress.
    As Is:
    Currently Auto Refresh allows for a frequency of once a day (Workbook can be refreshed max of once a day)
    To Be:
    Capability to refresh work book multiple times a day…

  15. Ability for Power Query Append to Union tables without auto-refreshing them

    If there are multiple tables that use different refresh frequencies, for performance reasons, you don't want them to auto-refresh whenever you union them.

    Currently this is what Power Query does and you cannot disable it.

  16. Email notifications on auto-refresh failure

    Auto-refresh currently fails silently. IT has no way to know the end users are using out of date data.

  20. Pause auto-refresh

    During the design of a visualization, pause the visualization from querying the database while you add dimensions and measures to the visualization. I am working with a very large dataset, so when I drag out a dimension or a measure, it's refreshing it eachtime. Let me pause that, drag out the whole design, and then refresh it.
