Hi Marco,

 

As already shared by others, currently there is no way to update data automatically in Power BI desktop.

Schedule refresh would be available under Power BI services, which need to configure the data source and gateways.

In addition, there is an idea submitted on this topic:

You may vote for it, to help make Power BI desktop better.

You can use "Power Update" to schedule your automation tasks in PowerBI Desktop. This is a third party solution currently available at reasonable rates and It is also compatible with Excel PowerPivot models.

Thanks & Regards,

Not currently possible to my knowledge. I am not aware of any VBA or Powershell scripting capabilities to automate Desktop functions. I suppose you could use some kind of automation (button pushing) software. Power BI is instead geared toward publishing to the Service and then letting the gateway automatically refresh the data.
