How to print refresh status in the report?

Hi

 

I have created a report using dataflow. My data is getting updated daily. I can see the refresh history in the dataflow and also my report is getting updated. Below is my dataflow refresh history,

However, I would like to print the refresh date and time in the report which should be automatically updated whenever data is getting a refresh. This would help the user. Is there any option to do in Power BI?

@Jason2500,

 

See the article below for a solution. The concept is to capture (in Power Query) the current time in PBI Service when the dataflow refreshes, and then convert it from UTC to your timezone.
