I agree with others, this should be part of the basic functionality.
want to use it as a near-real-time dashboard... without data refresh this is not possible. I agree with the others, this should be part of the basic functionality.
desperately needed. It shouldn´t be complex
desperately needed. Can set Excel to do this why not Power BI Desktop?
There are situations where PBI desktop can use a data source that the Power BI Report server cannot use - in this case it is necessary to have an auto refresh function in PBI desktop. Like I am facing in fetching ApInsight Telemetry in Power BI.
Really need to keep Desktop updated with Power Query of Excel to get valid scheduled updates in PBI service.
For near real-time On-premise data, Round trip to portal takes too long, requires an on-prem gateway, and currently doesn't allow for 2-5 minute refreshes. Ideally, I'd like a setting in Desktop that sends the Queries to On-premises sources and once all the data returns, send it again so I get as close to a real-time dashboard as possible but accounts for variations in network and database response speeds (dynamic). Please not something that is blinky on each update.
Very important. As well because the dataload over Gateway is not always running!
Yes this should really be part of the standard solution!! A schedule once per day is tbh useless.
