Visual Showing Number of Daily Scheduled Refreshes Used



Has anyone created a visual that counts the number of daily scheduled refreshes used per day?

To be honest, I am not sure how this would work so would be interesting to see if anyone has looked into this in the past.



A client wanted to use Flow to update on addition,modification,deletion of a record. However, as we found out that this action uses one of the 8/day refreshes with a Pro licence, it wouldn't be feasible. I was thinking to add in a Refresh Button to the report (using a combo of Flow and WrapAPI) that end users could click to update, as well as see the last time the dataset was updated.


So was thinking it would be even better to know the number of times it was already refreshed that day. That way, users can weigh up the necessity to press that update button.

Hi @v-kelly-msft ,


Thanks for your reply.


Unfortunately, not what I am looking for. Looking for more of a Card Visual Counter of times the report has been daily refreshed during the day.
