Best third party tool for Power BI Notification

Hi All,


We have a requirement where we need to send Power BI Report Notifications via Mail. We found that Power BI Pro has limitations in this line (Power BI Premium / Power Automate is not feasible for the requirement). Following are the requirements:

  1. Notifications with report snapshots in email body
  2. Notifications with report attachment (excel, pdf, ppt etc)
  3. Alerts for delta changes on visuals for static thresholds
  4. Notifications to people outside the tenant (organization) / with non Power BI Pro users
  5. Notifications with custom frequency
  6. Email with single visual attachment 

We have done enough research and found there are third party tools such as Power BI Report Scheduler (PBRS), Power BI Robots, etc

Can anyone please suggest which third party tool along with Power BI Pro would suffice the above requiremnts ?


Thanks in advance

HI @Shazia_Mohammed ,


I am not aware of any tool that does ALL of these things.  I know you mentioned that you didn't think that Power Automate was feasible but I don't think you will get anything closer to getting to your needs.  In my mind, you would need about 6 different flows with totally different criteria.  I think that third party tools do 1, 2, 3 or 4 of these things but not all 6. 

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Thanks for the Response!


I am aware that Power Automate can suffice my requirement but only with Power BI Premium Capacity. We did try building flows for the pdf / excel / ppt attachment email, it threw an error saying the flow requires premium capacity. We want to make it possible with Power BI Pro. 


If you could suggest which third party tool would suffice our above requirement, it will be a great help.


Thank you
