How to automatically stop Power Query Incremental Refresh when year ends



I set up the dataflow incremental refresh on PBI Service and it works fine.

I store data for 12 months and refresh last 3 months.




When the year ends (from jan to dec), do we have any way to automatically stop the incremental refresh so we can have a dataflow for data of 1 year complet? Because if the procedure continues for next month, then it will store 11 months (from feb to dec) for last year and 1 month for current year (jan), but i would like to keep it for 1 complet year (from jan to dec).


Is there any way to achieve this goal?


Any ideas would be appreciated, thank you!

Hi @danning1234 


As far as I know this is not currently possible. You would have to update the Incremental refresh policy
