Visual element with timestamp for last data update

I have a connection to salesforce objects. How do I get a new visual element within my report which shows me the timestamp of the last data update.

something like this. 

 

I don't get the information from the requests data. Is there a way to get this information from powerbi itself.

Within Power BI Desktop, you can add another Power Query dataset to display the current date each time we refresh the report. For more details, please see: Display Last Refreshed Date in Power BI.

I don't think there's a way to grab the last refresh date, but you can grab the most recent date from one of your data tables and display that ...

 

MAXDATE = CALCULATE(MAX(Transactions[Date]), ALL(Transactions))

Not perfect but it works really well in showing users how up-to-date the data is
