Monthly upload of data in PBI



I'm looking at the options of uploading the data on a monthly basis to the PBIX that i have created. Is there any other way to execute this apart from sharepoint scheduler?

Yes, there are other ways to upload data on a monthly basis to a Power BI report. Here are a few options:

  1. Use a third-party automation tool like Zapier or Microsoft Power Automate to schedule the data upload to Power BI.

  2. Write a PowerShell script to automate the data refresh process and schedule it using the Windows Task Scheduler.

  3. Use Azure Logic Apps to schedule and automate the data refresh process.

  4. Connect to a cloud-based data source like Azure SQL Database, which has built-in data refresh functionality.

Choose the option that best suits your needs and technical expertise.
