Schedule Run of Power Automate Flows created with PowerBI

I would like to run a Power Automate flow created with PowerBI on a schedule. Currently the flow is built into a PowerBI dashboard and the only option to run it is manually when: "On PowerBI button clicked". I need to run the flow daily and when I'm on vacation or OOO I won't be able to manually click the flow button. This will reduce the amount of manual clicks and we will have the opportunity to send the reports to our clients at any time on schedule.

Hi @flowie 
You can create a new flow in Power Automate as a scheduled flow. So the trigger is no longer the button in Power BI but a fixed time/day. I actually think ther is a flow template for this.

Hi @jeroendekk, can you provide more details on how to do it? I'm not sure how to create the schedule if my datasource is PowerBI
