Report Server and Microsoft Exchange refresh

Hello!  I have a question regarding a connection between the Power BI Report Server and Microsoft Exchange (not Online or 365 version).  I can connect to my inbox via the desktop version of Power BI, and upload and view the report on the Report Server.  However, as I understand it, the Report Server currently does not  support scheduling refreshing of Exchange items.  

 

Are there any workarounds to this where an automated refresh can still occur with data on Exchange, and connected to the Power BI Report Server?

 

Thanks!

The only way I know of to make this work is to use a script or some other program to pull the Exchange online data into another supported data source (eg. SQL Server) and then your PBIX file can do a scheduled refresh against that supported data source.
