Power BI Pro

If I have power Bi pro and share a report that uses Azure SQL-Database as a database to my colleges, can they update the data in the report without having Power BI pro themself. And if I use Scheduled refresh, can i make it update more often than daily?

Re: Power BI Pro

hi @MagneViki 

If you want the users could refresh datasource, you need to add them into a appworkspace and give them edit access, so that they could refresh the datasource, and this need them a pro license. If you share a report to them directly, they could only get a report so that they could not refresh data soucre.

With this Pro license you can refresh upto 8 times a day, and i think you could set scheduled refresh for this datasource and don't need to let end users to refresh the datasource.
