Refreshing Power BI tile in PowerApps



I am displaying a Power BI tile within my app, however it only refreshes/reloads to show a current view when the app is launched and the tile is viewed for the first time. I assume it then stores the data in a cache, because it does not reload to refresh the data when going back to the specific screen later.


My app use-case is that employees leave apps open on a tablet for some time, so asking them to close and relaunch the app would not be a good solution.


Surely there would be a way to refresh the tile from within PowerApps?

If not, has anyone come up with a workaround?


- I saw you posted about this not being possible in this post, however that was a year ago so I am hopeful that a solution has been found since?


PS: I am not looking to refresh the Power BI dataset or tile - just refresh the view displayed in PowerApps to ensure it resembles what the current tile looks like.. hope that makes sense.
