Scheduled Refresh SharePoint Folder "Last Modified" Filed Doesn't get Updated

Dear community, I have an issue I haven't been able to figure out for weeks.

 

I have a report I've created within Power BI desktop based on SharePoint Folders data sources (OneDrive for Business) and of course, loaded to PBI Service.

 


Since I am receiving some of the data on a daily base, some of it on a bi-weekly base, and some of it on a monthly base  I thought of using the "Last Modified" field to present how up-to-date the data is.

 

And so I created different measures based on the "last modified" field.

 

All seemed to work fine with Power BI desktop, however, when I set a scheduled refresh within the Power BI service, it doesn't show the last date, instead, it presents the date when I published the desktop report.

 

The Data is relevant, I have varified it - it is only the Date Modified which isn't refreshed accordingly.

 

What are my options to present the data's relevancy as I am seeking to? or what am I missing here in order to project the last modified field.

 

By the way, if I try going straight to the dataset within the service and "Refresh Now" - the date does change into the updated one.

 

Thanks in advance for the help!

 

All the best,

Ben
