Incremental Refresh in Power BI

Reza Rad doesn’t have time to wait for a full dataset reload:

The default configuration for the Power BI dataset is to wipe out the entire data and reload it again. This can be a long process if you have a big dataset. Hybrid tables in Power BI keep part of the data in DirectQuery, and the rest is imported for data freshness and performance. In this article, I explain how you can set up an incremental refresh in Power BI and its requirements. You will also learn about Hybrid tables in Power BI. Incremental Refresh is not just in Power BI datasets but also in Dataflows and Datamarts. In this article, you learn to load only part of the changed data instead of loading the entire data each time. To learn more about Power BI, read theĀ Power BI book from Rookie to Rock Star.
