Instances of published Power BI report

Hello, is it possible to see somehow report refresh history (previous refresh instance)?

 

What I mean is:

I have a report that runs daily and gives inventory values on that day. When it is refreshed the next day, it overrides yesterday's data (data set not allowing history view). Is there a way to view yesterday's version of the published report?

 

I couldn't find anything like it, but wanted to make sure it is a no before making changes in data set. 

Thank you in advance!

Hi @Pbix_is ,

 

To my knowledge, your requirement could not be realized currently.

Power BI is a "read only" system so it doesn't have the ability to store data beyond a refresh. Therefore, once you refresh, you will not be able to get pre-refresh data or reports through the service to compare with the latest version.
