Re: Dataflow updating time

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Once your dataflow has been saved, you’ll want to schedule the refresh frequency for each of your connected data sources.

Power BI dataflows use the Power BI data refresh process to keep your data up to date. In the Power BI service, in the app workspacesection, there's a collection of areas where your information can be listed, including dataflows, as shown in the following image.

Manage dataflows in the Power BI service

The Dynamics dataflow entry in the previous image is the dataflow we created in the previous section. To schedule refresh, select the Schedule refresh icon, under the Actions section, as shown in the following image.

Schedule refresh button in the Actions section

When you select the Schedule refresh icon you’re taken to the Schedule refresh pane, which lets you set the dataflow refresh frequency and time.

Schedule refresh settings

For more information about scheduling refresh, see the article about configuring scheduled refresh, which describes the refresh behavior of Power BI datasets. Dataflows behave the same behavior as Power BI datasets in terms of refresh settings.

Frank,

 

Only one more question. There are any prediction when the dataflow will be able to connect on Dynamics 365?
