Power BI Desktop RS refresh page?

Hello,

I'm using Power BI Desktop RS that version is 2021/01.

I want to refresh page inside Power BI Desktop RS, but I can't find the option to open it. Why?

My data source is using DirectQuery.

Please tell me how to open it, thank you!!

Hi @david904229 ,

 

If your data source is SQL Database, etc, try to set Data Refresh in Trigger Mode like so:

PowerBI RS: Setting Data Refresh in Trigger Mode | by Davis Zhang | Towards Data Science.

 

In this way, Data refresh will only be performed when the data has changed. This can ensure that users can see the latest data when using reports.

 

 

Best Regards,

Unfortunately I do not believe this option is supported on Report Server which is why this option is not shown

Is there any other ways can do it?

I think some people have used browser extensions to trigger a periodic refresh

Yes, I had tried it. But if I have not only one page in report, when I look the second page and it is refreshed, the report will turn back to the first page.....

@d_gosbell Alright..thanks!
