scheduled refresh for on premise database

I'm confused about the scheduled refresh and its limits.  I'm having trouble finding documentation that matches the screens that I see in our online Power BI service.  We have Power BI Pro licenses and it seems that we can only schedule a refresh daily or weekly and up to 8 times a day.  However, this article shows that you can do it up to every 15 minutes.  We'd like to do it hourly.

Also, if the data doesn't update except for the times of the scheduled refresh, what does the Refresh button on the top nav bar of a Power BI report actually do?

Re: scheduled refresh for on premise database

HI @lgroger ,

Refresh per 15 minutes is works on live connection mode datasource, if you are works on a mix mode or import mode datasource, it only allow you to set its frequency to daily or weekly.

BTW, refresh button on your snapshot means burning last data from cache dataset, it not means manually refresh.
