ODBC Connector for Dataflows

Hi Power BI team,

I am loving the new dataflow feature so far. Is there a chance that the team will add ODBC connector to dataflow in the near future?

Hi NickNg278,

 

It seems like dataflow preview doesn't support ODBC connector by now. Currently dataflow support most of online data source and has developed specific connector for them. You can submit your idea to the idea forumn: https://ideas.powerbi.com.

Re: ODBC Connector for Dataflows

@NickNg278 what I did was making the query in power BI desktop, copying the M code in advanced editor, and pasting it in a blank query in dataflows. It works, but I have the impression dataflows in not as stable as power BI desktop yet, I'm experiencing many errors and long waiting times.
