How to set refresh schedule to update "app" workspace?

  • 1.  How to set refresh schedule to update "app" workspace?

    Posted Aug 05, 2018 11:03 PM
    Hello,

    I have an app - workspace at power BI web. However, when I publish update from power BI desktop to the report in the web workspace.
    I also need to go to Power BI Web and click "Update app" button then all contents will refresh and update.

         Is there a method I can set the app - workspace to schedule refresh?

         Regards,

         Jeff

    ​From the "Datasets" tab of the APP workspace hit settings and then configure and enable automatic refresh. NOTE you will need a gateway, in my organization I dont' have the permissions to create them so I need to submit a support ticket)

    Jeff,

    It is unnecessary to re-publish the Power BI App during every refresh.  A scheduled refresh of a dataset handles it automatically.

    You only need to republish the app if your structure, schema or visual designs are changed.

    Hope it helps,
    Chris

    ​Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your suggestion. But the setting you showed, look like is just for a single dataset but not the whole workspace App update?

    ​Hi Chris,

    Thanks for that. Yes, I got it now. So, the data of the dataset will update as schedule refresh but not the visual object (e.g. manual date of update input)

    Thank you very much.

    Regards,

    Jeff
