How to add Dataset's Last Refresh Date on your Power BI report.

Hi,

 

Can anyone please let me know how can I display dataset's last refresh date of my power bi report? I want to display below date. I want this option on report, not on dashboard.

Create a new Blank Query, and then add this into the Advanced Editor:

 

let
    Source = DateTimeZone.FixedUtcNow()
in
    Source

 

Then any time your report is refreshed, you'll be able to use this to show the date/time of the refresh.

Thanks for you quick response. My report is based on direct query, so I won't be able to create Blank Query. What do you suggest for this?

If it's directquery, then you could just create a new DAX measure:

Last Refresh = UTCNOW()

UTCNOW() displays current UTC timing, whenever we open the report. But whenever a report is opened that does not mean dataset is refreshed. So I want to show last refresh time from dataset, which is shown below.

Re: How to add Dataset's Last Refresh Date on your Power BI report.

If you're in directquery mode, anytime you open the report in the Power BI service the query is refreshed

 

From: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-directquery-about

"When opening an existing report in the Power BI service, or authoring a new one, the underlying data source is again queried to retrieve the necessary data."
