Re: last time refresh

Yes, that's what I'm expecting in the Dashboard view, but there I see nothing.  The screenshot from the "Last 24 hours" is the one from the Dashboard view.  When clicking on the box in the Dashboard view, I see nothing, just the faint outline of the tile. I will say the Dashboard and the Report have two different names.  I've seen in other areas there may be issues if things are named differently, could this be the case here though?

thanks.

@vkdubw   That is odd, attached an image of the Dashboard view I'm referring too

Re: last time refresh

Yep, that's exactly where I'm at.  I'm going to give it a few days of rest then pick it up again.  Thanks for the confirmation that I'm looking in the correct area.

Re: last time refresh

@vkdubw  what type of graphic is that "Last 24 hours" in the dashboard - is it a standard Card?

Re: last time refresh

ya, that particular one is a text box but it's the same with all the tiles.  Number, Filter, Bar Graph.  the tiles just highlight, nothing shows up in the upper right of the tile.  I was in a meeting and brought this up yesterday and was told this feature was disabled on PowerBI with the latest release.  I haven't been able to find any note or paper mentioning that but am going to look for it today.

 

thanks again.

Re: last time refresh

@vkdubw,  feature still working for me (in Australia) - I just created a brand new dashboard on a "free" user licence in case it was a pro v free thing, but still works.

Re: last time refresh

Coming to this topic late. But I should note that the time refresh it will say in the dashboard is not the time the data set was last refreshed, just the time the dashboard tile was refreshed which will mislead any user.

Re: last time refresh

HI @robertsbd,

 

I just refreshed my data set and the dashboard date refreshed has updated as expected.  So I don't seem to have an issue there.

 

How do you refresh just a dashboard tile?

 

Thanks

Re: last time refresh

Hi,

 

I was noticing that you can have the dashboard tiles displaying a recent refresh date even though the data set itself has not been refreshed, so I think it would mislead the user about the data.

 

You can click on the ... in the top left of your dashboard next to share, and there is an option to refresh the dashboard tiles as well.

Re: last time refresh

Interesting point,  never thought to refresh a dashboard tile independenlty of data refresh.

 

The whole Dashboard and Report refresh options seem misleading.     Data Refresh should be all that's required IMHO
