I have a dashboard that heavily uses DAX calculated tables and measures and refreshes every hour from 9am to 4pm . The company that I work for operates 24/7 and would like to see a more "live" dashboard. With the limited functions available in direct query mode, I am unable to meet the requirement. Any suggestion/guide towards a way to achieve the goal is highly appreciated.
Thanks for your comment. As I've mentioned in my previous comment I want the dashboard to update 24/7.
If I were to refresh the dashboard every half hour, I will run out of the currently available 8 schedule slots in 4 hours which not quite ideal. Can you please explain what you meant by "With Direct Query, you can shape/transform the data in your data source before make live connection from PBI Desktop" ?
Does that mean I can shape/transform data on a SQL server using DAX before pulling data using direct query? If so how can I do that?
Thanks Herbert. But I doubt a SQL query can do the job of a calculated table or a measure. Since I posted this on the wrong place you may close this thread. I wanted to know if I'm missing anything. Looks like it is not possible to achieve what I'm trying to do with the feature set available at this stage.
Thanks for your comment. We use PowerApps to write data to a database and as far as I know PowerApps doesn't support PowerBI API yet. Please let me know if there's any way that I can connect to PowerBI API in PowerApps.
