Automatic refresh when opening report in Power BI

Hi, I have my reports in Power BI Desktop and Power BI services with the data source from a third-party, and I connected them as instructed. Can I set up an automatic data source refresh each time I open the report on both platforms?

The option you are looking for is available neither in PBI Service nor Desktop.

 

You can set up a scheduled refresh in service by configuring the gateways with the data sources.https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/refresh-data)

Power BI Desktop only allows manual refresh. Auto-refresh in the desktop is not possible, but there is an idea for it:

Thanks. Now I need to check if my data source is allowing scheduled refresh. It seems to be a good idea to add this feature to the desktop version as well.
