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!
Thanks for all the feedback on this! We are definitely planning on adding Incremental refresh to Pro. Do know though that it is a fair amount of work, so it may be a bit before we can give you a more firm timeline.
In the meantime, keep voting so you’re notified when we do have more information to share!
It would appear that our votes are going nowhere here. Unbelievable. So much for my Microsoft Partner membership.
This post has more votes than almost any other post on this forum, yet we can't get any respect from Microsoft. Why is that?
We need an answer NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since Incremental refresh is already available in Premium, why is it not available in the Power BI Pro subscription. I have several dozen customers that want to purchase the Pro subscription but, will not until incremental refresh is available in Pro subscription. I'm getting a bit tired of waiting for Microsfot to add this easy feature. If I do not see this feature real soon, I am going to move our entire platform and all of our customers to Tableau. I've had a enough of this nonsense. I'm also going to blog this inadequacy to all future subscribers to PowerBI Pro. I'm just simply fed up with Microsofts underhanded tactics and I will putmymoney where my mouth is.
We are in the process of choosing between Power BI and Tableau. If the incremental refresh is not available, in PRO subscription, we will not be choosing Power BI for our BI platform. What are you going to do Microsoft ???
When a dashhboard is shared with a user, the user has the access level of Read only assigned. This access level cannot be changed by the person doing the sharing. The person doing the sharing should be able to grant an access level greater than Read only so that the recepient can pin tiles from the underlying report to creat additional dashboards for themselves. This is a serious flaw and has to be fixed now !!!
Great idea. We have the concept of ‘favorites’ in the mobile iOS app, which we could bring into the dashboards with a personal dashboard too.
When can we expect a user to be able to pin tiles from their shared report to create dashboards?
