Power BI Dataflows - Allowing Schema Drift in Source

Hi, I am doing some testing with using dataflows to consume a SharePoint list and drop the results into Azure Blob Storage.

We are hoping to work around some of the pitfalls of using SSIS to consume SharePoint Online lists that frequently have more colums added.

 

Unfortunately when a column is added to the SharePoint list source, the Dataflow doesn't pick up the new column in a Scheduled Refresh and bring it through.

 

This is different to the behaviour of Power BI desktop that will just bring through new columns as they are added to the source (unless a remove other columns transformation is used).

 

Are there plans to support source schema drift in Power BI Dataflows?
