In regards to scheduled refreshes being paused due to "inactivity", what is considered "inactivity"?

In the documentation it says: "After two months of inactivity, scheduled refresh on your dataset is paused. A dataset is considered inactive when no user has visited any dashboard or report built on the dataset. At that time, the dataset owner is sent an email indicating the scheduled refresh is paused, and the refresh schedule for the dataset is displayed as disabled. To resume scheduled refresh, simply revisit any dashboard or report built on the dataset."

 

If we are using the dataset (in powerbi.com) as a data source in power bi desktop does that count as activity even though no one is logging into powerbi.com and looking at the report?

If so is that the same with excel using the dataset as a data source? 

 

Thanks

Hi @MitchDixon ,

I have not tested it until now. And no dataset can be tested.

My understanding is that, when you connect to dataset in Power BI Service from Power BI Desktop, you are interacting with the dataset. So, it won't be inactive.

 

If my understanding is wrong, please let me know.

 

Best Regards,
