Refresh of One Drive taking longer than 1 hour

I have a Power BI Desktop report that is connected live to a Power BI Dataset.  Both the report and Dataset are stored on my business one-drive.  Generally when I refresh my dataset, my report is refreshed pretty quickly on Power BI Service.   Where I seem to have issues is when I create new measures in my data set.   The report that connects to this dataset does not update as quickly.  It can take sometimes more than an hour.  I would have thought that if I open my connected report in Power BI Desktop that I would get instantaneous results but this is taking a long time also.

Hi @angelakephart ,

Did you mean import way here? To refresh the data by this way, that depends on some points as below.

 

  • How big is the data source being refreshed?
  • How complex are the operations be performed on the data?
  • The network.

No, I'm not talking import.

If the dataset I am using is a Power BI Dataset stored on One-Drive, why does the Power BI Report not update immediately when I open it.  The  bottom left of the report indicates ti is connected live to the Power BI dataset.  This specific wording implies live changes to me.

I have removed my dataset from Power BI Service.  I published it again to the Power BI Service rather than import it.  Now when I add new measures, I just re-publish it and any report that I created using this dataset is now updated immediately.  Unfortunately, this means I am back to a manual process.
