Trigger a Flow alert with a button/slicer?

Is it possible for an end user to click on a button or slicer in a report and trigger this way an alert on Microsoft Flow?

 

I guess it is not because you would need that button to push data into the dataset somehow, right? Any workaround? Essentially, I want users to be able to trigger Microsoft Flows from Power BI reports.

Hi @AlejandroG,

 

I'm afraid not. Currently, only Power BI service supports to set an alert to trigger a Microsoft Flow. Inside a report, it is not possible to add a button or slicer to trigger Microsoft Flow, controlled by report viewers manually. Here is a relative idea, you could click to vote it up.

That´s what I thought. Maybe it can be done with an R script, unfortunately that does not work published to web reports. Thank you Yuliana, I´ll vote the idea.
