How to get the Latest Date/time for Dataset update/refresh

Hi Guys


I my report i want to show when the latest update/refresh of the dataset was done, i can see the info in the service as shown in the screenshot, but i'd like to fetch the same data in desktop so that i can incorporate the info into the report. How can i get that info via PowerQuery or perhaps DAX?



Thanks in advance, i really appreciate the community and all the effort you guys put into your answers and help🙏

Thanks @Syk & @some_bih  for your input, they are great👍

Because my data is funneled through a DataFlow in the service, i'd like to show the last DataFlow Refresh date in my report, so if the dataflow fails i'd show in the report that it hasn't been refreshed/updated as scheduled. 

Do you know any great ways to do that?

Hi @some_bih 

Thanks for the reference. I tried creating a table in the dataflow as such:

#table(type table [#"Dataflow last refresh"=datetime], {{DateTime.LocalNow()}})
But the refresh time that it returns is not up to date. I created it at 12:25;

and i've refreshed the table several times and the time doesn't change. The DataFlow says it was refreshed at 13:37 after refreshing:



, shouldn't the value in the table/column represent the same value as the dataflow refresh time?
You have any idea why?

Hi @MacJasem according to link (before) it could be that upload dataset to power bi and your machine are different places / counties (mention in link similar as your scenario).
