Updating the datamodel behind the dashboards

Hi,

 

I have a Power Pivot datamodel, which I upload to Power BI, and create some dashboards from it. However when my datamodel needs to be changed, I cannot carry over the dashboard I have created. Seems to me, that I have to recreate the whole dashboard and reports with the new datamodels. Is there a way to avoid this? Would the datamodels be updateable with Power BI Designer?

If you store your PowerPivot data model in OneDrive for Business and connect to that file from Power BI, any changes you make to the data model in OneDrive will be reflected in Power BI after five minutes or so.
