can i trigger an event , if i click on this button ? and can i query a  file system folder and reada csv file on click of this button.

Hi, @Samolpp,

You can import any csv file to the SQL server and then query it. A CSV file can be connected directly with the Power BI query editor simply using the GUI. I'm not sure why you want to get SQL involved as an intermediate step!

Hey, @Samolpp,

Using PBRS, you can choose to send out PowerBI output when an event happened, Simply create an event-based schedule and choose the condition type from the drop-down

I also have a requirement to have an intermediate step, like an upload button to browse from my system's file system and upload an excel file just to do an import to PowerBI, instead of importing from PowerBI inbuilt feature. is it possible in PBI desktop?
