Dashboard tiles don't automatically update when updated report is published

Dashboard tiles don't automatically update when updated report is published


I'm publishing report from Power BI Desktop after new month is chosen. The report is updated correctly in Power BI App but the data in tiles on Dashboard show data from old report. I have to make new tiles in dashboard in order to show new sales numbers. I connect via gateway to my cube in data warehouse. Please help.

Hi all, 


This feature now works as expected:





The tile refresh option is now available..but in my case my tiles on my dashboard are connected to a report that have slicers.  When i change the slicer to another month and go back to the dashboard and "refresh tiles" they do not update to the month that was selected.  Is this included in the tile refresh?  How do we handle that?


Tile refresh

Tile refresh updates the cache for tile visuals, on the dashboard, once data changes. This happens about every fifteen minutes. You can also force a tile refresh by selecting the ellipsis (...) in the upper right of a dashboard and selecting Refresh dashboard tiles.

For details around common tile refresh errors, see Troubleshooting tile errors.

I am wondering if anyone has been able to resolve this issue?


Monthly I need to re-create visuals in my dashboard to track monthly sales.  Very annoying.

"Pinning the entire page is a hack and it creates many other problems. I am shocked this problem has been around at least a year and a half."


Make that THREE and a half years!
