How can I synchronize data with Excel

I have imported an Excel file and I would update PBI Desktop dashboard every time I change Excel file even if every hour. Is it possible ?

@hamzahad91 in the power bi service it is possible, are you pushing it into the service, however if you doing from your network you need a gateway.  If you using one drive or sharepoint i think it automatically pushes the changes.

How would that work? 

The excel file should be uploaded on "One Drive Business" or "One drive Personal" so if there is a change in that excel file it automatically updates the power bi file with that data?

I'm trying to accomplish an excel file that will be modified on demand to sync with the report as soon as the excel is modified so that the client is able to visualize the new data on the report.
