Auto refresh for dashboard and report

Hi,

 

After i refresh dataset or using refresh scheduler, can we set reports and dashboard auto refreshed too?

usually i need to manually refresh on the report. Even dashboard not updated when report is updated, need take some times until dashboard refreshed too.

thanks

If the storage mode is import, there is no automatic page refresh option for reports. You have to click on the refresh button or reload the tab.

 

FYI - If the storage mode is DirectQuery and if you have dedicated capacity, then you could enable automatic page refresh.

You can create in a flow in Power Automate to automatically update the data. You can then download a Google Chrome extension like Auto-Refresh, and have the Power BI Refreshed around the same time as when you schedule the Power Automate.

If you open the reports or dashboard and updated the datasets(scheduled refresh or manual refresh),

  • You will not see the changes in the report. You have to click refresh now button or reload the tab to view the latest data.
  • You will see the changes immediately in the dashboard tiles. (You don't need to refresh the browser).
    • These datasets don't require a separate tile refresh because Power BI refreshes the tiles automatically during each scheduled or on-demand data refresh.

Hi.

So pinning whole report page as "tile" (not report individual graphics, but whole page) to dashboard does not provide automatic refresh capabilitys? When i pin individual graphics from page then automatic refresh is working when dataset is updatated.

I am using dataset "push" method and would like to desing my "tile" as a group of graphics and shapes.

 

Thanks!

If you pin the live page as tile, it will not refresh the data automatically. That means you will not see the data changes in the report page tile in real-time.

To view the changes immediately without refreshing the browser, You have to pin the visual one by one or you can explore the feasibility of automatic page refresh in Power BI.
