Schedule refresh a desktop file from onedrive

Hi all,

 

I need to schedule refresh a desktop file from one drive. To refresh manually, it is taking 4 hours and slowing my laptop down.

 

Is there a way to do this? I have seen that we can do this in service. But will it refresh the data in the original desktop file?

 

Regards,

Abrar

Re: Schedule refresh a desktop file from onedrive

Hi @saad_mce ,

 

I'm afraid that Schedule refresh is for the dataset in Power BI Service, so we cannot achieve that in Power BI Desktop.

 

Actually, when you make changes to your file on OneDrive or SharePoint Online, such as adding new measures, changing column names, or editing visualizations, once you save the file those changes will be updated in the Power BI service too, usually within about an hour.
