In this post, we will look at how to refresh a Power BI dataset using the Power Automate (Flow) mobile app. We previously looked at how to refresh a Power BI Dataset using a Power Apps Canvas App. When using Power Automate, it’s even easier.

Give the flow a name, e.g. Manually Refresh Power BI Dataset. We will select Manually Trigger a Flow – Flow button for Mobile:
Add a new step.
Select Power BI – Refresh a dataset:
We will refresh the same dataset as in the previous example – Warehouse Workspace, Sales Manager dataset:
That’s it. Save the flow and make sure it’s On.
Now, log into the Flow mobile app on your phone. We see the new button, Manually Refresh Power BI Dataset. Click on it, and your dataset will be refreshed.
