PBI Desktop refresh need to perform 2 times

In many cases, the first refresh takes forever. I have to stop it then refresh again to go through.

Anyone get the same experience and can PBI team do something ?

Slow refresh can caused by many reasons. Try turn on the 2 features in the option.

normally the first refresh takes more time tham others when done on your computer, cause when you open the power bi desktop the model its calculating the queries in the background, process thats needed to refresh, so if you let the file open for a while before refreshing you will see it will refresh quick on the first time, the time its takes to do the query on the background depends on the complexity of the query, the data volumen and your pc specs and internet if its using online resources
