One dataflow source for multiple data sets

I have one dataflow that gets refreshed every 30 min and I have 4 reports that are using it as source.

 

Can all of them use it at the same time? or is there some sort of order? Which would mean that the refresh time would be queued and therefore slowed?

 

THanks!

Hi @PowerBITestingG 

If you are using Dataflow entity (table) in Dataset then you can connect as import or Direct query mode if you have premium capacity. If it is import then you can setup a refresh. If you choose direct query then you no need to refresh again for your dataset and reports as you will get the latest data from dataflow.

So if all of them are in import mode, will they all be able to refresh at the same time? or is there like a queue?

Hi @PowerBITestingG 

It will be in parallel and again depends on the data source you choose.
