Please add a OneDrive data source option in Power BI.

It is incredibly frustrating that Power BI does not come with a OneDrive for Business option baked in and is especially strange since OneDrive belongs to Microsoft. It seems like this would have been present in the application from Day 1.

Having to manually locate a file outside of Power BI, identify the correct URL for the file in a OneDrive account, and then having to plug that in to Power BI is unnecessarily convoluted and is particularly difficult for new Power BI users to manage.
