Pro users have the ability to schedule refresh for daily (intra day) and weekly. For some datasets, monthly is the right cadence. Can we have a scheduled refresh option that is Monthly (and lets us choose which day of the month the refresh is to occur)?

RE: Add "monthly" as a scheduled refresh option

I can't believe this is still not an option. I have data that only refreshes once a month but no capability to schedule the report to only refresh monthly. It's a waste of resources. I know there have been comments from Microsoft about using PowerAutomate to trigger refreshes, but that's yet another thing for IT to have to manage. And, if we use that strategy, how am I to determine if planned refreshes actually occurred? It's unfortunate that the scheduling functionality of the service is LESS THAN the scheduling functionality of Power BI Report Server.

RE: Add "monthly" as a scheduled refresh option

Holy moly, why is this question even needing to be asked? Why is this not available?

RE: Add "monthly" as a scheduled refresh option

I currently schedule jobs to run weekly because monthly is not an option. Microsoft could lower resource consumption by making this an option. For monthly, I need options like Fist 1 and Last "For example, some reports are needed the last Thursday of the month, other reports are needed on either the 1st or 2nd Monday of every month.

This would be Super useful. Also under monthly, if it was possible to add things like, working day 4 or the first Monday / the Last Friday.

Hello @Admin, The idea has changed to under review over a year ago, it would be nice to see this option, which is useful for many organizations that have monthly reports.

RE: Add "monthly" as a scheduled refresh option

We would also be greatful if a monthly refresh option or at least similar option as on the Report Server would become available! Is there any update on this idea?

RE: Add "monthly" as a scheduled refresh option

Please add monthly and quarterly as a scheduled refresh option. Our users require this for their dashboards. We use the same dashboard for 7 different clients and each client has their own refresh requirement for which monthly and quarterly are requirements. We desperately need this option sooner than later as we don't want to have to maintain scheduled refresh configurations in 2 different places.Do you think you are close to making it an option? We have a project deadline of August 31, 2023 and the admin comment on this idea stated that it was under review as of October 21, 2022.

RE: Add "monthly" as a scheduled refresh option

We are trying to move to Power BI from other BI tools and this limitation is problematic. Every other BI Tool we use has a monthly scheduling option. Please make this available with Power BI.
