View Power BI notifications


Power BI is moving to a new look, and some images in the documentation may not match what you see in the service. Learn more about the new look and try it for yourself.

The Notification Center is a sequential feed of information related to your Power BI experience. Open it to see messages about new dashboards that have been shared with you, information about Power BI events and meetings, alerts you've set, and more. You can set alerts in the Power BI service and also in the Power BI mobile apps.

Watch Amanda review, manage, and respond to notifications. Then follow the instructions below the video to try it out yourself.
