#PowerBI #PowerAutomate

Learn how you can run a flow from Power BI directly with the brand new Power Automate visual for Power BI! This new visual creates an “On Power BI button click” trigger for Power Automate that we can use to create instant flows in Power Automate that are triggered from a button click in Power BI.

In this video I walk through a demo showing how you can take tabular data from a Power BI report and send a notification to a Channel in Microsoft Teams that includes that tabular data using the integrated Power BI data in tabular form dynamic content property. This is even smart enough to account for if you have filters applied in your Power BI data!

    A piece of wonderment. I needed to have a button to enable a user to initiate the refresh of a dataflow. Bam…..5 minutes of work and done. Brilliant tutorial.

    Great stuff April! I'm an ERP consultant (Business Central) and low-code enthusiast. I still want to create an interactive Power BI dashboard that makes it possible to update SKU parameters from items in Business Central. And that's now possible because of this brand new visual! Thanks, will definitly use this in the near future.
