Since R script is part of the data manipulation tools, it should be part of the items that can be executed/updated using scheduled refresh. R scripts can help to significantly enhance the data sets, with the additional libraries they offer.
Taking for example geo-spatial calculations, you need to execute the R script on the data to classify them into different geo-spatial groups/categories.
Having the ability to do that, but not being able to schedule a refresh of the data (with the script as part of the refresh), kinda makes the feature useless... Please add!
This is in our backlog. Please vote to receive updates as we make progress.
