Is there any movement on this issue? Regex support would greatly improve adoption and use of Power Query/M Script, I know a number of potential users that find this a missing feature that results in far too many tedious and complex workarounds to solve data clean up and pattern matching issues that would be relatively simple with regex.
We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.
At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.
You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh
We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!
