Power BI Dataflow is taking more time to refresh.

Hello Everyone,


We have a Power BI Dataflow created using multiple views and each views created on top of one single view. When I execute the views at SQL, it is taking 18mints to get executed for each views. When the dataflow is refreshing, it is taking 18mints for eachview sequentially and since I'm using 10 views in one dataflow and other 10 in different dataflow, it is taking more time to refresh the dataflow. 


Do we have a option for parellel refresh of the tables present in the dataflows so that all the tables will get refreshed within 30mints?


Thanks in advance,

Thank you for the suggestion but currently we're not looking to create a SPs to load the calculated columns into table but if this approach get the approval, we'll definitely go for this solution.

Hi. I haven't heard about a way of running the tables in parallel at the same dataflow. You can split the dataflow and run them at the same time. If you want to reduce the time, the best approach would be changing views for Store procedures that creates tables. Then dataflows would query a table. That way there is no logic between the dataflow and the engine, it's just simple bring me data no logic.

I'll leave this article just in case you want to deep dive at dataflow practices:

I hope that helps,
