Feature details

Report consumers want to act on the insights they find, and many times those actions happen outside of Power BI (for example, send a note, create a task, copy the data). Report creators want built-in automation for their consumers but need to ensure that actions are performed on the data that the consumer has selected. By introducing a Power Automate visual like Power Apps, authors can embed a button directly in a report that can be used to trigger a flow. The executed flow can be contextual by considering the filters set by the consumer at the time the button is selected.
