Hi, how often can the Power BI report be updated If I import the data from SharePoint via a web data source and publish it to the Power BI service?

Hi  @Samrawit21 ,

 

 If you import the data from SharePoint via a web data source and publish it to the Power BI service,then in Service,it will show as a scheduled refresh,then you need to set the refresh frequency per your request.It wont be refreshed automatically.

Hi @Samrawit21 ,

 

The number of automatic refreshes is based on your license.  The standard Pro license allows up to 8 refreshes a day.  The other licenses can allow more.  If you want to manually update it you can update it as many times as you would like during the day - but that is not very efficient so using the automatic refresh is much better.

 

I would appreciate Kudos if my response was helpful. I would also appreciate it if you would Mark this As a Solution if it solved the problem. Thanks!
