    How can set up a new update Task for Power BI free Preview?
    After I have filled credentials fields, I have no idea about to fill “SharePoint Site URL” and “Document Library” fields. Any suggestions?

    Raul,

    You can type in the url to the SharePoint site. It goes like: https://mycomp.sharepoint.com/sites/BIFiles,

    You should include the path to at least one Site Collection or subsite.

    The option on the screenshot refers to Power BI v1 (Power BI on Office 365). The current preferred method for updating Power BI v2 workbooks is to publish them to a local folder that is synced by OneDrive, and use OneDrive as a datasource in Power BI v2 (http://www.powerpivotpro.com/2015/02/introducing-power-update/#comment-109853)
    When the Power BI v2 API is ready, we will support direct upload to Power BI v2, if that’s supported by MS.
