let's say you are importing data from dataflows to a PowerBI dataset, can we have an option when we refresh PowerBI dataset that the connector to the dataflow check if the table last modified date has changed or not, if the date has not changed since the last refresh just ignore the refresh.

this is particularly useful, when you have big tables or you are using multiple dataflow with different refresh schedule, it will make reloading data only when necessary, it is less usage on PowerBI service and make the refresh substantially faster.
