Schedule Refreshment of a composite model

Hi,

I have create a report and dashboard based on a composite model. This dataset/composite model consits of:

- 3 excel files imported from a SharePoint folder.

- 2 DirectQueries to a SQL Server connected by a gateway.

The DirectQueries needs to be updated minimum every 15 minute, but the excel files only needs to be updated weekly or less. How can I adjust/customize the schedules? Under settings it is only possible to schedule a refreshment daily or weekly - and only for the whole dataset.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Schedule Refreshment of a composite model

Thank you for your feedback. The main issue was that the pins on my Dashboard only refreshed once an hour and I needed it to refresh minimum every 15 minute. But I solved it by splitting my Dashboard up to pins from several reports and using "import" as storage mode for the reports/visualizations where it is necessary / the only choice - and "Direct Query" for the rest.

Re: Schedule Refreshment of a composite model

Hi @KristinaMoller ,

By my tests and research, I'm afraid that we cannot set the different schedule refresh for one dataset.

May be @GilbertQ  will have other workarounds.

Re: Schedule Refreshment of a composite model

Hi @KristinaMoller 

 

When you are using DirectQuery it will always update to the lastest data in the report when you interact with the report items which are using DirectQuery.

 

In your case this should work fine and update immediately when you interact with the tables that use DirectQuery?
