Schedule Refresh of CSV files in folder that need to be combined

Hi,

I have a folder with many csv files that I combine through PowerBI (it perfectly works in Desktop) so that I have a full dataset that I can use. 
My question is: if I schedule a daily refresh of that folder in PBI Service (everyday there's a new csv file added to the folder), would PowerBI be able to combine them every day?
Or is the combine option not subject to scheduling? 

I'm asking this prior to testing so I can understand if it's worth it

 

Hope someone can help!

Thanks!

you will need a data gateway for that, so that PowerBI service  can access fiels on your PC, but it should work

Thanks Stachu for taking the time to reply,

 

Yeah, I knew about the Gateway, I just wanted to make sure it would work before setting it up (company restrictions and time-constraints). 
But I finally had it set up, tested it, and it's working smoothly. 

It's also much faster than connecting to and importing from Google Big Query.
