Using PowerBI to update tables in a sql server database

Can PowerBI push updates to tables on a sql server database? This seems to be a feature gap with most data visualization tools. The use case for me is having a manager view their financial position in a PowerBI Dashboard, and allowing the manager to enter a forecast amount directly into the dashboard, which would update a record / field in a table stored in a database housed on one of our sql servers.
