Power BI Connector - Refresh Dataset

I'm happy to see the new actions associated with the Power BI connector.  I'm trying out the new Refresh Dataset action, and I'm wondering if there is a way to get the refresh dataset action to wait within the Flow until the dataset has finished the refresh? I would like to use this action to refresh a published Excel workbook and then use the newly refreshed data within the Flow. 


Simply adding a Delay action isn't ideal as each refresh seems to take a different amount of time regardless of how simple the query is.  Thoughts?

John White just published a Blog on that topic today.  Take a look at it and see if it doesn't help

Re: Power BI Connector - Refresh Dataset

His blog post shows how to kick off the dataset refresh in Power BI, but doesn't specifically address waiting for the dataset to be finished processing before going to the next step in the Flow.  I would like to pause the Flow until the data is refreshed as the rest of the Flow will be dependent on having that dataset refreshed.
