Refresh desktop version of the report with changes done in workspace editing mode


is there a way to refresh my desktop version of the report (without downloading data set) with changes that were done by other user but not in the desktop version but in editing mode on the workspace? 

Every time I want to have the most recet version of the dashboard I need to download report from workspace and I would like to avoid this step, but have an opportunity to refresh it somehow from my desktop PowerBI. 

I need all updates, not only data, but changes in visualisations and measures too (done by other users or me on workspace).

This can't be done from inside Power Bi Desktop however you could schedule a powershell script to run with Task Scheduler.

Have a look at: Call any Power BI REST API with PowerShell - YouTube

and then use this endpoint: Reports - Export Report - REST API (Power BI Power BI REST APIs) | Microsoft Docs
