Sending Email Notifications after publishing report to PowerBI servers



We use PowerBI to generate & refersh reports periodicly. Once refereshed, we publish these reports to PowerBI servers.

These reports are shared with many users inside our institution.

Is there a way to have PowerBI service send these users email notifications once the data is published online?

This way users are notified when a new version of the report is available online.


Any suggestions?

Hi Yaman,


If you mean Email notification regarding report update in Power BI, currently this is still not available. There are ideas already submitted on this topic:

Ability to alert dashboard users when a dataset is updated

Besides, please take a look at hte Alerts mentioned by smoupre:

Data alerts in Power BI service





Is there an update on this? Is this possible now?

Have your users set an Alert on a Dashboard tile to something that will always trigger. Alerts are only sent for scheduled refresh data when the data changes.
