Dashboard Alert Not Working

I have a dashboard alert set to fire when a card is above 0 at most once every 24 hours. I then tie this to MS Flow to send an email off, however the Power BI alert didn't fire off this morning even though the alert should have been triggered. The dataset refreshed successfully this morning. I'm wondering since the alert was 1 on the last time the data set was refreshed, and it's still 1 after today's refresh...does it see that as a data change? Is there any way to mitigate this?


Thanks in advance.Refreshed.jpgam. It worked fine on Friday morning, but it did not send an email today. Flow.jpg

Hi there

What I would do, is to let it run every hour.

Based on your details it is still the same day, so even though your data has refreshed, because it is the same day the alert has not changed for that day?

They were different days. The report successfully worked on 11/1 with an alert count of 1. The data set refreshed on 11/4 and it had an alert count of 1, but the alert did not work. 

Yeah it should work as expected.

If it still does not work I would suggest creating a support ticket for further investigation
