An exciting addition to Power BI April release is Power Automate Visual. This adds a host of capabilities to Power BI directly without relying on Power Apps. Users can now activate PA flows directly at the click of a button from Power BI passing necessary action values. This is not only restricted to operations like Send Mail or Create tasks but could also bring the Powerful Data Manipulation capabilities within Power BI. Here we take up a simple example to show how users can now delete records from Database with a click from Power BI. We were familiar with these SQL actions in Power Automate but there was no way to use them in power BI directly so far without having to use Power Apps. More Power to the platform!!
This is the title of a live demo session that demonstrates the Microsoft Power Platform products working together to create an interactive data application. I recently had the honor of presenting this at the Dublin Power BI User Group (@DublinPUG) during my visit to the Power Platform World Tour in Dublin.
In this blog series I will detail all the steps needed to get this demo up and running on your own. I will use the text in this post, as well as screen shots and video's explaining it step by step. So, if you're already (somewhat) familiar with Forms, Power Automate and/or Power BI streaming datasets, feel free to go directly to the video's and start building your own demo right away. Otherwise, keep reading and eventually you'll come across all the resources as well.
