Last Refresh - New File Check - Suggestions WANTED!

Many of my reports and dashboards in my PBI experience  are set to refresh multiple times during the day.  The updates are predicated on a file being exported from a source system and written to a SQL database.  Along with this, I have a "Last Refresh" tile  on the dashboard to show when the file was last updated.

 

I am curious to know if anyone is using a process whereby if there is no change to the source file (or the file fails), that I can stop the "timestamp" from presenting it as "updated" information.

 

i.e. If the file doesn't change, or never arrives, the refresh doesn't occur.

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

Hi @irnm8dn,

 

I'm afraid that we may not stop the "timestamp" from presenting it as "updated" information currently in Power BI.
